How Can Artists Reshape Politics?


Wednesday, January 29, 2:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Filmmaker Lodge, 550 Main St. (2nd floor)
Open to Festival credential holders

What would it look like if artists were at the forefront of our political and civic lives? In this U.S. election year, For Freedoms—a nationwide network of artists and institutions inspired by the history of creative people convening to shape society—is designing a set of guiding principles and a new “artists’ platform” for political engagement. To help design an artist-powered future, join Hank Willis Thomas, Eric Gottesman, and Michelle Woo of For Freedoms; artists Kahlil Joseph (BLKNWS), Elissa Blount Moorhead, and Amelia Winger-Bearskin; and Tony Patrick and Robert Sinclair (Guild of Future Architects’ Futurist Writers’ Room).

This panel will have an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter on-site.
