The School of Art, Media & Technology (AMT) at Parsons is pleased to announce the AMT Student Social Justice Award. This award recognizes students’ commitments to actively and critically explore and hold themselves accountable to the values outlined in the following AMT Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice (EISJ) statement:
As students, artists, designers, educators, and cultural producers, we must acknowledge the lineages of white supremacy, racial discrimination, and other forms of systemic oppression that exist within our society in the U.S. and abroad. In the School of Art, Media & Technology (AMT), we are committed to creating a more inclusive, equitable and anti-racist community. We aim to support and advocate for the needs of all AMT students, staff and faculty across all identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, culture, citizenship, or socio-economic status. We will stand in solidarity with marginalized communities who have been historically excluded from institutions, including Black, Indigenous, Latinx, AAPI (Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander), People of Color, Queer, and Trans folks, and aim to center their narratives and practices within our learning environment. We recognize the limitations of language that can’t envelop the breadth of all intersectional identities, and as such, we are committed to advancing equity, respect, and thoughtfulness within our teaching pedagogy, curriculum, classrooms and across AMT.
The selected student award recipients will receive an award of $250 and their work will be entered into a new Parsons AMT Social Justice student work archive. Award recipients will be notified before May 19 and will receive their award by July. All submissions will be included in the AMT Social Justice Student Award Archive.
This award has been created by a group of part-time and full-time faculty on the AMT School Curriculum Committee, as part of their mission to ensure that our school’s commitment to equity, inclusion and social justice is an active one. As part of the ongoing commitment by faculty to deepen our commitment and ability to teach with anti-oppression and social justice frameworks, this award aims to both celebrate students’ commitments while building an archive that faculty across the School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons can use as a tool to explore how students are engaging with AMT’s stated EISJ values.
