Description


This event has been postponed.

Artists have always been at the forefront of cultural change, frequently pointing us in the direction of a more equal and democratic society. Often before the rest of the culture is ready, the artist plays a central role in questioning assumptions, visualizing new structures, and picturing a better world to live in. A cross-disciplinary panel explores how the arts are a vital creative laboratory for justice, democracy, and social transformation. 
 
Presented with the Center for the Humanities.

Part of the series “The Promise and Perils of Democracy.” This project is made possible in part with support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
