11:00AM - 5:00PM
As we mark the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arriving to the shores of Jamestown, Virginia, as a nation, we finally have begun to face this centuries-long legacy of inequality. Despite an imbalance in power and systemic and structural barriers, the arts have kept our communities thriving. But as artists and cultural producers are displaced by high rents and gentrification, what does this mean for our ever-evolving communities? What role does the arts have in helping to dismantle structural inequities and sustain community? How can and how does the arts galvanize the power of the people to affect change? This full day symposium featuring a keynote, panel discussions, breakout sessions, and art will begin to grapple with these questions while providing participants an opportunity to connect, vision, and build for the next 400 years.
$35 donation for full day symposium includes lunch. Advanced registration is suggested.
