Represent! Diversity and Equity in Arts Education | Marq Mervin | TEDxFSCJ

As a lifelong video gamer, Marq Mervin had always dreamed of working in computer animation, but as he entered his senior year of college, he began to despair for one simple reason: no one in the industry looked like him. Eventually Mervin found a mentor who, as a person of color, inspired him not only to believe in himself, but to believe in the unfinished fight for diversity in fine arts education. Like a sumptuous meal still lacking its full range of spices, American arts education will lack its signature flavor until we embrace the full diversity of our people. Marq Mervin is a graphic designer and CG artist focusing on visual identity/branding, animation and digital illustration. He has over seven years of experience as a professional artist, developing animations and graphics for clients such as WJXT Channel 4 and several start-up businesses. Mervin holds a Master’s of Fine Arts in Computer Graphics from New York Institute of Technology, as well as a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Animation from Jacksonville University. A native of Jacksonville, Marq is a passionate advocate for developing young artists in his hometown.

As a college student, activist, and community volunteer, Luis is working to change our perspective on the undocumented immigrant youth of this country. Luis Mejia is a student at FSCJ. Although he has lived in the United States for 17 years, he is originally from Mexico, and is one of the thousands of people who were granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival by President Obama’s direction to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2012. Growing up between American and Mexican cultures, Luis has discovered how valuable an education is in each.
