Arts for Change
We’re putting a spotlight on social justice and the arts.
Join a panel of acclaimed artists as they expand on how they express themselves through art and advocate for change in their communities. Deepen your artistic practice with a facilitated Q & A, and an opportunity to network virtually in breakout rooms.
Music and Dance for Change Workshop
Topic: positive ways to be an ally to Indigenous peoples, define cultural appropriation and discuss the pros and cons of cultural tourism.
Kevin A. Ormsby
Topic: Discussing the 5 lessons learned from Creating, Working and Performing with and in Communities, Kevin A. Ormsby will lead a break out session, speaking to some of the aspects to consider in Dance for Change and Social Artivism through Dance. The session will explore some basic tools with participants as we create Art for Change in the moment.
Pandora Topp: In April, in the heart of the pandemic crisis, I said yes to an unsolicited opportunity to show up and create, which resulted in the unexpected emergence of my own singular, artistic voice, and a strong impulse to share it. This is Imperfect Poetry.
Topic: We will work with emergent drawing, automatic writing, embodied voice and witness it through an audio-visual lens. Our intention: To proceed forward with presence into the unknown and to capture ephemera, movement, feeling through the four elements of drawing, writing, unrehearsed voicing, and the audio-visual record. No skills or experience required.
