Art & Change Collective Presents Tackling Our -Isms: Fatphobia/Size-ism

Event Schedule

Mar 8, 2018
6:30 PM

The Art & Change Collective presents another installation of Tackling Our -Isms, a multi-part series of conversations and presentations aimed at  understanding and combating our various social prejudices. Our newest topic: Sizeism and Fatphobia.

This moderated conversation is intended to deepen our understanding of “fatness”, and the politics of size in America. We are going to unpack the history of body image in the States as well as our own sizeist beliefs and stereotypes.
