David Gere & Marla Berns: Make Art/Stop AIDS

David Gere & Marla Berns (Los Angeles, UCLA Fowler Museum) Faculty

Make Art/Stop AIDS was a four month collaborative Arts/Action initiative (December 2006 to March 2007) organized by the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures and the Fowler Museum, in conjunction with a group of international scholars, curators, artists and social agencies, Los Angeles community partners, and two UCLA non-arts organizations (UCLA International Institute, UCLA AIDS Research Institute).

The primary goal of Make Art/Stop AIDS is to demonstrate the power of art to raise awareness, inspire activism, and ultimately, to help end global AIDS and to galvanize individuals and communities to take responsibility and action.
