We will discuss how white supremacy, institutional/corporate power, misogyny, and surveillance specifically affect artists here in DC, and the things we can do together to create a more fertile art scene. The format of this discussion will mirror a Town Hall and will be moderated by Jessica Solomon. We hope to walk away with tangible solutions to better support each other and our communities while also creating a level of accountability in the ways we give away our collective power.
Please come prepared with questions, comments, concerns about how issues of inequality affect your practice.
Stay late for refreshments, beer, and wine and to celebrate the conclusion of Now More Than Ever! This is your final chance to see the show.
