Boxes and Walls at the University of Idaho

Boxes and Walls at the University of Idaho personalizes oppression and the importance of activism by “bringing it home” for the individual. Participants are led by a tour guide through a series of “rooms”. The tours will be held April 10th-12th in the Gooding Wing of the Wallace Complex residence hall on the University of Idaho campus.

Tour times: Thursday, April 10th 2:00-8:00 p.m.
Friday, April 11th 4:oo-8:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 12th 4:00-8:00 p.m.

Each room is designed to focus on a historically oppressed group, culture, or social justice concern named by students. Along the way, participants are placed into situations, doing activities, while being confronted with a wealth of information. The Boxes & Walls experience gives us all a glimpse of what being part of each group might be like, both historically and in the present day. The themes this year will include issues of oppression affecting: Poverty, Privilege, Language, and Ability.
