Artist's Talk

Tavares Strachan Yale School of Art

The Social Justice Fund’s #YouBelongHere campaign was created to encourage a sense of belonging among people in the community and around the world. Using Tavares Strachan’s You Belong Here/We Belong Here installation—which is currently on display outside the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY—as a visual backdrop, the project encourages people to share their stories of belonging on social media using the hashtag #YouBelongHere. In this panel discussion, Strachan speaks with founder of the Social Justice Fund, Clara Wu Tsai, alongside public art historian Kymberly Pinder and Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Tamar Gendler, to share how this project was envisioned and realized, and how public art can affect social change in communities around the world.
