Brandon Sipes and Andrew Hendrixson present “Art as Intervention”

Brandon Sipes recently presented a paper entitled “Art as Intervention” at Point Loma Nazarene University’s “Nurturing the Prophetic Imagination” Conference.  Sipes and Andrew Hendrixson, a colleague in the MFA program at the University of Florida, have been exploring the role of the arts in conflict and post-conflict societies.

This paper was an exploration of the possibilities inherent in nurturing the arts in these societies, as well as a hypothesis of the power of art to cause a “disruption” in the despair and violence so prevalent in conflicted societies.
