We are excited to kick off the year with our Fall Community Lunch from 12:00 to 2:00 PM on October 18th on the lawn of Harmony House! We welcome our beloved community to share in music, food, art making, and performances. Our lovely Harmony House is undergoing construction at the moment and we are excited to share its transformation with you all in November. Please join us on the lawn of Harmony House; there will be plenty of food and fun fall and ghosted themed festivities. Whether you are a Harmony House regular or first timer, come kick it with us to find out more about the space and creative community on campus. #community #stanford #IDAStanford

It’s that time of year again! #IDAfellows retreat. Every year we welcome a wonderful group of undergraduate artists and activists to deep-dive into a year-long experience linking social justice, arts practice, leadership and transformation. Welcome to our newest fellows. (A few not pictured here) Sending love to past fellows, you are always in our hearts🌿💜
IDA’s latest guest artist is Tanya Lukin Linklater. Her performances in museums, videos and installations have been exhibited in Canada, the United States and abroad. Her work centres #Indigenous knowledge production in and through #orality, conversation and embodied #practices, including #dance. She considers That which sustains us a conceptual and affective line within her work. While reckoning with histories that affect Indigenous peoples' lives, lands and ideas, she investigates insistence. She considers the ways in which Indigenous ideas inhabit or interrupt museum spaces, and the relationships between live performance and museum collections made up of Indigenous objects or cultural belongings. Come join us for this important talk and exceptional performance. Let’s come together in community around these important issues. And please help us spread the word, tag a friend (or two) that you think would want to attend! For all IDA events, go to our website and subscribe to our newsletter. Link in bio.
This Thursday, our fearless leader A-lan Holt will be in conversation with Richard Meyer at the free lecture titled: The provocation of Art: From Mapplethorpe to Now. Art does not just sit there looking pretty. It has the power to spark strong responses in viewers and to move them (both literally and metaphorically) to take action in the world. In this presentation, Stanford Professor Richard Meyer and Director at the Institute for Diversity in the Arts at Stanford University, A-Ian Holt will consider the role of art in provoking political conflict and social change in contemporary America. Check our website for more details.

IDA artist-in-residence Amara Tabor-Smith in process with students for REVIVAL. Which premieres this fall via @stanfordtaps #Repost @stanfordarts ・・・ In the ReVIVAL Arts Intensive course, students are working with Stanford Artist in Residence Amara Tabor-Smith on a site-specific, multimedia, dance theater work. The survival research performance work was launched from the history of the student activism that took place on the Stanford campus in the late 1960s, and has a particular focus on the student actions that led to the founding of the Committee on Black Performing Arts (CBPA). Students in this Arts Intensive course will continue into the fall quarter, culminating in the premiere of ReVIVAL at Roble Studio Theater the weekend of November 14-16. 📷: Trever Tachis

Thankful for the coverage of IDA’s mural “Are you sure sweetheart that you want to be well” created by @jessxsnow. Article written by #GraceLi read more at the link in our bio. We hope this feels like a gift to many generations of Stanford students of color. We 💜 you #Repost @sfchronicle_datebook ・・・ “It’s a huge way of showing the communities of color and women and queer folks that we see them and they are deserving of monumental walls,” artist @jessxsnow said. Their mural, “Are You Sure Sweetheart, That You Want to Be Well?”, stands on the wall of @idastanford’s Harmony House, where renderings of Mother Earth and a Stanford student reach for each other, healing from intergenerational trauma. It's based on #ToniCadeBambara’s novel “The Salt Eaters,” and features stars, roots, and bright blooms of California poppies.
