The American Dream has long been aligned with national westward expansion, in the desire both to settle and occupy as well as to generate and convert local economies and ways of life. This panel proposes an alternative direction for dreaming: starting from indigenous perspectives and on-the-ground activism in Arizona and moving through institutions of higher education. Panelists share local models of production and activist engagement that meet a new imperative in the classroom: to understand and respond to the shifting demographics and economic conditions that affect our students, our jobs, our universities and the state of the field. “Dream Activism” proposes models for sustainable movement-building to envision new ways to teach and practice theater in higher education around the country.
