How Can We Breathe: The Artists and Meaning-Makers

November 5 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us, in partnership with Minnesota Humanities Center for the third conversation in the ‘How Can We Breathe’ Series. In the third virtual community circle of the Minnesota Humanities Center’s How Can We Breathe series, Artists and Meaning-Makers will discuss their role in shaping public dialogue after crisis events, specifically the murder of George Floyd. Learn how artists respond to crises, influence landscapes, drive narratives, and inform the public. Together we will address whose work is privileged, who “owns” public art work, and how is it preserved/memorialized.

Participants will be called to join this virtual space to learn, understand, and share. This conversation, centered on the African American experience, will identify strategies and resources advocates and allies for a racially just society can use to ensure that African Americans are fully empowered within our democracy.

We look forward to seeing you at this event and having you join us for future conversations with Policymakers and Community in December.
