Today's Art for Change Workshop provided by the Smithsonian Latino Center fit perfectly into our dystopian unit.  We have been looking at both negative types of propaganda that attempt to control people and revolutionary tactics aimed at reversing the mind control of negative propaganda (ad busters, Buy Nothing Day, mockingjay, etc.) At the workshop we saw posters from a social art campaign in Puerto Rico with the intention of strengthening their community's education, health, nutrition, and communication.  In groups students worked to create their own social art on topics of their choice which included bullying, racism, clean energy, immigration, security, and education.  Students' art is on display in the world languages hallway.
