Ray Barney is a senior at the University of Minnesota double-majoring in gender, women & sexuality studies (GWSS) and Asian languages and literatures (ALL) with a minor in art. They are already doing work informed by feminist, Black, trans, and queer praxis. With the tools and opportunities they’ve gained during their time at the University of Minnesota, Barney hopes to be a part of the shared fight for shared liberation.
Jan Estep, professor of art, explains how her introduction to mindfulness meditation completely changed the way she taught, the way she made art, and the way she made sense of the world. The combination of art and mindfulness has enabled her to help people understand themselves better.
