How to create a culture that’s more diverse
Culture appropriation is defined as “the appropriation of an entire culture’s traditions, symbols, or cultural practices, in order to enhance the presentation of a particular culture’s goods or services in a particular manner.”
It’s a serious matter, with the potential to undermine the very values that underpin the cultures that create it.
The issue has arisen with a new wave of “cultural appropriation” in recent years.
The term refers to cultural appropriation of the art, literature, music, fashion, and other cultural items that are used or appropriated by a person or group.
This is when the culture being appropriated is not the same culture that originally created the item being used.
In other words, it’s an appropriation of something that has no relevance to the original culture being used or abused.
But in a way, it can be very different from the original cultural appropriation.
For instance, many artists have adopted a certain type of appropriation to their work, and this appropriation can be more profound than simply a cultural appropriation in that it can take on a life of its own and become a part of the person’s identity.
A cultural appropriation may take on an entire identity of its very own, and become an element in the way that that person perceives themselves.
Cultural appropriation is a tricky thing to deal with, however.
There are a few things to keep in mind, and the key to doing it right is not to just use the term in a generic way.
“I can use ‘cultural appropriation’ as an umbrella term for anything I do with my culture,” says Jazmin Ziegler, the co-founder of The Arts Lab.
“But if you want to do it for real, you need to take a very specific and specific look at what your own culture is doing and how it can benefit your work.”
The ArtsLab aims to explore this issue in depth through an ongoing series of “art, literature and culture” classes, which it hosts on the same week every year at The New School.
The class format is similar to those offered by many other academic organizations, where students can apply for a class based on their personal interests.
The aim is to explore the ways in which cultural appropriation affects their work and create a more nuanced understanding of the ways it impacts people’s lives.
“There are so many different ways cultural appropriation can impact people,” Ziegberg explains.
“For instance, if you are a black woman, you might not have a lot of exposure to black culture, and your work might not fit with black stereotypes.
But when you are working with a group of white people, the cultural appropriation that they are doing can make a huge difference in how you see and experience your work.
You might see how your art is used to make a specific point about race, or you might see it as a way to validate a specific person’s experience of whiteness.
“When we talk to students about their work they really don’t feel that they have any ideas or strategies to combat cultural appropriation.” “
We have been really surprised by the number of people who have been interested in learning more about cultural appropriation,” says Zieglers co-author of the course, Anais Pham.
“When we talk to students about their work they really don’t feel that they have any ideas or strategies to combat cultural appropriation.”
But it can still be a real challenge to make sure that your work doesn’t come across as a victim of cultural appropriation and instead is a genuine reflection of your own experiences.
“It can be hard to avoid the feeling of being the victim,” Zigler adds.
“Because we don’t see this happening to us, we are often unaware of the impact that our work has on other people’s cultural experiences.”
Zieggers advice to students, if they are feeling overwhelmed, is to start with one thing: to make it clear that their work does not represent or be a reflection of a specific culture or ethnicity.
“Make sure that when you talk about cultural appropriations that you are not just talking about cultural items,” she says.
“The only thing that your cultural items represent is yourself, and it is your work that is not part of that.
Make sure that you aren’t using them to justify or justify the cultural practices of a culture.”
The Art Lab’s own Art Lab workshop, titled “The Black Culture,” is a perfect example of this.
Each day, there is a lecture on “the history of race and culture in the United States.”
Each lecture has students share their own cultural experiences and reflect on how those experiences affect their work.
“Some people are just going to have this one cultural experience, which is interesting, but you are also going to feel the impact of it on you,” says Pham, the Art Lab co-creator.
“What you are going to want to take away from the workshop is that you needn’t feel guilty about using your cultural artifacts for any kind of commercial purpose, as long as you are using them as a reflection.”
