Week Three Theme :: Art and Democracy

Saturday, July 11, 2020

Artist, advocate, activist, citizen. What is the role of art — and the artist — in an active democracy? In this week, we hear from artists raising the social consciousness, challenging the status quo and engaging communities large and small toward meaningful action.

  • We consider how art and artmaking serves as a catalyst for dissent and change and has the unique ability to bring community together to heal following trauma.
  • How are the arts uniquely positioned to move the conversation forward, when other attempts at dialogue fail?
