Wells is looking for presenters for the 2016 Activism Symposium.

The Wells College Activism Symposium Committee welcomes the submission of presentations from activists on campus, from the region, and from around the country. This year's theme is "HashtagActivism: Civic Engagement in the Age of Social Media." We invite presentations on any of the many issues and areas of concern facing us today that help provoke discussions around the following questions: What does it mean to be an activist? What approaches can we use to make change? What are the ways in which social media can be an effective tool for mobilizing communities and promoting meaningful conversation?

We encourage presenters to embrace artistic/ scientific/ playful/ experimental/ researched/ conjectural/ personal/ cultural work that brings people together or gives them a voice to make change happen.

The Symposium will be held Monday, April 4, 2016. The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, March 11th , 2016. Click to submit yours.
