The See/Saw Festival is a project of KU Professionals for Inclusion and Social Justice in the KU Department of Special Education. The 2016 See/Saw Festival focuses on the concept of pushing and navigating “borders.” We imagine borders operating across multiple domains, such as physical or geographical boundaries, personal space, and identity. This weekend of interdisciplinary events will engage the university and Lawrence community in dialogue that explores the intersections of borders, boundaries, and social justice across multiple contexts. In occupying these public spaces with care and courage, we will facilitate difficult, yet critical, conversations, navigating the positive and negative aspects of operating “on the brink.” Our overriding intent is to build our local capacity for social change as we further our collective efforts toward equity, inclusion, access, and justice.
