April 27: Free speech/hate speech

Space is still available in the special half-day symposium at UD that will explore the complexities of free speech, the hurtful impact of hate speech and ways to balance privilege with the rights of others. Advance registration is required.

Hansen is an American artist who developed a physical disability from his craft and recognized this limitation as an opportunity for creative growth. 

As he shared during his talk at the TED2013 Conference in Long Beach, Calif., “‘Embracing the Shake,’ for me, wasn’t just about art and having art skills; it turned out to be about life and having life skills … Learning to be creative, within the confines of our limitations, is the best hope we have to transform ourselves and collectively transform our world.” 

Hansen is renowned for his uncommon methods, which include original portraits and replicas of classic masterpieces created using items such as cardboard coffee cups and fresh produce.

An IFC representative said the organization is confident that Hansen’s message will resonate with individuals from all walks of life and invites all students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends to attend.
