The Institute for Diversity in the Arts Presents: Art + Community: Division, Resilience & Reconciliation

A nine week lecture series bringing together the top creators and activists working at the intersections of art, culture, and social change.

--

Freedom is meaningful only insofar as it lifts us all, especially those of us who have been done the most harm. In times of violence and polarization, art heals and brings people together, and can articulate new ways of finding community and freedom.

In this weekly lecture series, we will explore how we make and sustain community, especially in the face of threats from within and without. We will do this especially through examining how artists and culture workers of color develop and advance practices that build mutuality, criticality, renewal, trust, and joy in the face of ongoing racial injustice and cultural inequity

--

Week 3, Jeff Chang will moderate a discussion Difference and Belonging with three artists changing how we few identity, culture, and our desires for belonging. Guests include Alex Gibson (Executive Director of Appalshop), Judith Smith (Founder and director of AXIS Dance Company), Vicky Holt Takamine (Executive Director of Pa’i Foundation and Kumu Hula Master Teacher). Alex Gibson will also hold a community music making workshop at 9pm at 576 Alvarado.
