A culminating event for the Art & Society Census Project.
For the past year, BPL and partners have engaged in radical listening from people across the country about what changes we want to see in the arts, in culture and our daily lives, while the pandemic upended all of these. Through a survey of over 1500 people and a series of focused working groups, we’ve heard and taken stock of what important changes on the part of institutions, cultural producers, and participants need to happen and what fresh imaginings can help us seize this moment.
Topics on the agenda: inverting expertise and finding new languages, financial transparency and better funding models, the importance of local organizing & institutions for our survival, what we wish to see--a series of demands.
We call together the public to hear about our learnings and voice your own.
We are joined by project organizers, working group facilitators, and working group participants.
Project Organizers: Laura Raicovich, Jakab Lászlo Orsós and Cora Fisher
Facilitators: Fadwa Abbas, Kazembe Balagun, Suhaly Bautista-Carolina, Jennifer Keeney Sendrow & Hrag Vartanian.
Participants: Open to all.
*A document will be shared with all who sign up in advance of the event, which has been compiled from the project and outlines the observations offered and changes demanded by participants.
Art & Society Census is funded by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation’s Innovation Fund.
