Image Making Lab: Eviction Defense
Using art and image-making to build a community-driven movement that addresses eviction defense issues facing Boston and its greater communities, a group of students collaborated with its outside community to help take a stand on unfair evictions and foreclosures of housing during the pandemic. Working with Stable Ground Boston, NuLawLab at North Eastern University, and City Life Vida Urbana (CLVU).
The project yielded over 200 pieces of PPE to hand out at eviction defense stations, as well as logos, and slogans and the production of 100 T-shirts, 300 masks, and Stencil kits built through collaboration with students and CLVU.
Participating Students: Barb Abulashili, Julia Petrocelli, Sam Mayer-Svarczkopf, Cecelia Crumlish, Kenton Bueche, and Andrew Cain. The class project was initiated by Jules Sievert and her Socially Engaged Art Course at the School and Museum of Fine Art at Tufts University.
