Pass the Mic! Create. Curate. Care. Saturday Session, 10:30am—2pm ET
Artists, designers, curators, scholars, and art facilitators recognize that cultural initiatives need to respond with agility and alacrity to the realities of inequity, in all of its forms. How those responses are enacted is a more complex set of questions. This online conference focuses on the political potentials of care and compassion as practiced in the arts. Participants will reflect on the differences between hearing and actively listening, and between speaking with and speaking to, in a variety of art-centered exchanges.

Pass the Mic! Create. Curate. Care is presented by the Evelyn Danzig Haas ’39 Visiting Artists Program at Wheaton College, Mass. Organizers are Claudia Fieo, Elizabeth Hoy, Ellen McBreen, Kim Miller, Leah Niederstadt, and Shaya Gregory Poku
