Art & Society Census Working Group
NEW DATE & TIME
April 16, 23, 30 + May 7// Fridays at Noon
Working groups are free, facilitated courses, meeting once per week online for the month of April. Register for this first event and you are registered for the entire course. For questions or to get on a waiting list once registration is closed, please email [email protected]
We’ve received the first wave of responses from the Art & Society Census, a project dedicated to hearing about what you desire from arts and culture. We’ve invited experienced Facilitators to lead virtual public working groups, focusing on specific issues based on popular interest.
For the first two weeks, this working group will focus on Encounters. The second two weeks will focus on Visioning, imagining the kinds of arts experiences and spaces we want.
A public event in June with leaders from the arts & culture field will share the results of these discussions.
Key questions: How do we enter cultural space and what do we find when we get there? Do you feel welcomed or watched? How can arts and cultural institutions meet us where we are? How do we learn the unspoken rules of entering a museum or art space--or change them altogether?
