Resist Covid Take 6!
A Teaching Resource & Lesson Plan
Engage your students with this social impact project by artist Carrie Mae Weems through lesson plans and teaching resources. Develop a social impact campaign and create supporting materials like a cover story, poster design and hand fan. High school students may even use their poster design as a portfolio piece.
Conceived by Carrie Mae Weems and Pierre Loving, Resist Covid Take 6! is an artist-driven public awareness campaign that aims to educate and enlighten Black, Brown, Latinx and Native American communities about the impact of COVID-19 on their lives. UArts is the exclusive presenter of Weems’ project in Philadelphia.
The Center for Immersive Media at UArts recently produced an interactive map with 360-degree panoramic documentation—compatible with virtual reality (VR) viewers—of the installation. You can use the interactive map in tandem with the Resist Covid Take 6! teaching recourse and plan.
