ESF is one of the stops on Art Force 5's SUNY-wide Spring Break Tour. Their day-long residency (March 7) will feature a staff training session (11-12:20), a student workshop (5-6:30 pm), and a hands-on collaborative art project (10am-2pm) which will grow from school-to-school before a complete project is displayed in NYC to honor the 1917 activists who stood up agaist violence and lynching on the one-hundredth anniversary of the Silent Parade. The ESF Residency is sponsored by the Committee on Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (IDE) and SUNY's Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI)
