What will I learn?


How might we re-imagine immigration policy?

In 1973, John Lennon and Yoko Ono re-imagined immigration policy through a satirical performance art piece at a New York City press conference by founding the country of “Nutopia” through a public declaration.

This course is a 1-day immersive workshop for 12 students to re-imagine immigration policy through the inspiration of John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Students will learn from other people how they feel about immigration policy, synthesizing those multiple POVs into one singular—and provocative—POV, rapidly experiment with 3 different mediums of expression; and finally focus on one medium to craft a provocative statement on immigration policy.

Students will end the day by sharing their provocative art with each other—and the world—via social media. #nutopiabydesign
