KU Students to Create Art for Tolerance

November 17, 2016

KUTZTOWN, Pa. - The Kutztown University Communication Design Department (KUCD) is coming together to create a day of tolerance and understanding on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Sharadin Arts Building.  The department will host “KUCD Creatives Care: Hate the Hate.”

The four-hour workshop encourages students to create design, illustration and art with the message that intolerance is not tolerated and that KUCD truly cares about our campuses, and our country. 

Recent events have America divided. The talk of racism, bigotry and hate is filtering through society and onto our campuses. As educators, we are tasked with leading our students through this climate—to let them know that America is a place where all races, religions and genders are treated equally and without prejudice. That our campuses are a place where students can feel safe. That our classrooms are a place where students respect students, and are free from hate. 

The workshop attendees are also encouraged to spread the word through Instagram and other social media venues, using #kucdhateshate, #kucdcreativecare, #creativesunite and #hatethehate. We want to show the world that our students and faculty care. Stand with us to Hate the Hate.
