Art and Justice (March 2023)

The work of justice calls for creativity in building a new, better world in ways we can hardly imagine today. It is an endeavor to which artists can offer critical contributions. For if the status quo seems permanent to some, artists among us have always known better. Throughout March, we will explore how art contributes to justice. How do creatives deepen and widen our perspective on justice? What tools and practices can we borrow from art to advance our shared concerns for the common good? We will learn from artists already doing the work of making new things, and critics and visionaries who have long argued for art that is not only beautiful but useful. 

Daniel Bernard Roumain will be our webinar speaker for March. Daniel is a prolific composer, performer, educator, and social entrepreneur. He has worked with artists from Philip Glass to Bill T. Jones to Lady Gaga and has appeared on NPR, American Idol, and ESPN. 

Daniel Roumain will be our webinar speaker on Mar 11
