237.130 Week 11 – Glossary

Agency is taking action to produce a certain outcome. In art, agency is making work that takes action itself or moves people to take action. I would like to incorporate this into my work – rather than just making something that “makes people aware”, I would rather make something that helps the cause or takes action in itself. But how do I do this???

Social Responsibility is the notion that every person has a responsibility within society to make sure the society is fair and livable for all. It means being aware of how you are impacting society and taking action to make it better.

As defined by wikipedia, Transformative learning is the process of “perspective transformation”, which has three dimensions: psychological (changes in understanding of the self), convictional (revision of belief systems), and behavioral (changes in lifestyle). Similarly, we can take Transformative Practices to mean practices that actively engage in trying to change perspective/thinking and incite action to change the world.
