Houston-based artist Sasha Dela is teaching the UH Mitchell Center course "Efficacy in Practice" in conjunction with S.O.S. The course surveys a range of activist practices through presentation and discussion around the work of various artists and collectives. Students take an active roll by outlining their own concerns and experimenting with diverse modes of making through assignments involving collaborative approaches, web-based projects, and projects that explore and reinterpret history. A range of visiting artists and curators will visit with the class to talk about their practices and answer questions.
As part of the course, students are collaborating with the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange Students to help create the dancer's attire for "Time Has Set the Table for Tea," as well as contribute to the choreography and conversation topics of the teas.
