Community and Identity Through Art

Your local community is another place where you can celebrate who you are and how you contribute to society. Visit either a local newspaper website or the nearest large city newspaper to you. Go to their community page and locate three ‘positive’ images that demonstrate community in your area. Click on the word “Text” and describe the ways each image empowers your sense of community and identity. (How does this image project an “I am proud to live here” type of atmosphere). Would this image encourage others to join your community? Why? Remember to reference the image on the References page.

Community and Identity in Music

Music of all genres often tell personal stories of identity as well as broader narratives of community. For example, Lee Greenwood’s classic song, “I’m proud to be an American” demonstrates the feeling all Americans share about the opportunities they have received to build strong families and strong communities.

Go to YouTube and find a dance or musical performance that reflects your sense of community (that can be local, regional, or your Herzing community) and/or your sense of identity.
