As art and political theorist Murray Edelman writes, "Art is the fountainhead from which political discourse, beliefs about politics, and consequent actions ultimately spring … Art should be recognized as a major and integral part of the transaction that engenders political behavior." The goal of the Arts and Advocacy Applied Minor is to deepen and enlarge students' ability to think about the relationship between art and political discourse. Students will deepen their ability to tell stories and practice the skills of moral imagination in the work of social justice. Students will practice skills in creative expression and show how they deploy these skills in social justice venues.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
