U-M Stamps School of Art & Design associate dean for research Jane Prophet discusses in the Firearm Injury Prevention Series for the “Michigan Minds” podcast episode the positive impacts that art and design can promote in communities. Prophet highlights that designing pieces around difficult topics “encourage people to think and come together,” even allowing individuals to heal from traumatic experiences by opening up a conversation. The faculty expert notes the importance of considering new perspectives through the power of art, explaining the “busy streets” theory and how it advocates for safety and empowerment.
