Description

Artists respond to, engage with, and shape the world around them. That's what they do.  Hear from visionaries who have embraced that role, stood up and advocated for issues of import, making art into action. Then engage in a participatory Town Hall session on ways we can individually or collectively learn from these examples and others to forge a way forward.  What’s needed to do so? What are the risks and opportunities?  How can we best stand as allies? What needs to happen before we stand as allies?
