February 13–22, 2020

UPRISING is an annual series that narrates the experiences of Black students, faculty and staff at St. Olaf through the visual and performing arts. Hosted in February to coincide with Black History Month, this student-curated exhibition creates space for marginalized voices and fosters community interactions among Black students, faculty, and staff. UPRISING harnesses creative expression to demonstrate how the co-curricular can enhance curricula in departments that seek to improve access and inclusion within their majors.

UPRISING 2020 is co-curated by Amanda Rose ‘21 and Bridget Asamoah-Baffour ‘21
