Sold out: Arts & Social Change in a visioning summit and discussion about Race
The Arts & Social Change on November 5th is now sold out! Read on to see how you can still help to envision ASC’s future.
Arts & Social Change started last year as a one-off symposium, but since has grown into an active Facebook group, a partnership with Cultural Congress this past spring, and a joyful summer gathering at Madrona Park. The time has come for Arts & Social Change to begin a community visioning process to figure out the next steps the organization should take to be a meaningful network of arts administrators, artists, community leaders, and social justice activists, as well as the best ways to bring about social change in the region through the arts.
To help spark discussion, Robert Garfinkle, lead architect of the RACE: Are We So Different? exhibit, will be in town to participate in a roundtable about the exhibit. Fern Renville (Red Eagle Soaring), Alma Villegas (local artist-musician), and others will join Garfinkle in providing progressive local responses on how RACE‘s content informs and directs our local arts and social change efforts.
It is encouraged to view the exhibit at the Pacific Science Center before the discussion with Arts & Social Change. The exhibit will be free to the first 800 people visiting from 5-8 PM during the first Mondays of November and December. You can also view hours and prices at the Pacific Science Center’s site.
This event is now sold out, but you can still participate in visioning by filling out this survey.
