On Point - 23 - Social Sculpting with Rasu Jilani

Rasu Jilani is an Independent curator, social sculptor and entrepreneur whose work investigates the intersection between art, culture and civic engagement as a means of raising critical consciousness.

Uber, a case study: as immediately benefiting black men, and as presenting safety issues for women. The importance of cognitive diversity. Diversity as quantitative and inclusion as qualitative. Rasu’s “social sculpting” project, applied to social issues like gentrification. “Inquiry-based methodology.”
