Panel Discussion: Practices of Care
March 16 | 6:00 PM
“Practices of Care” brings together a group of artists, educators, community organizers, and healthcare professionals for a conversation about art, activism, and care. With a particular focus on projects that emphasize the experiences of GLBTQ youth of color, this conversation will include presentations by the artists Theodore (ted) Kerr and Tiona McClodden (both featured in the exhibition “One day this kid will get larger”), as well as Chicago-based practitioners Bonsai Bermudez (Executive & Artistic Director of Youth Empowerment Performance Project) and Jacqueline Boyd (Founder of The Care Plan). Under consideration will be the limits and possibilities of visual art production to enact social and political change, the history and aesthetics of community-centered care programs, and the important role voices of youth play in shaping collective visions of the future.
Free and open to everyone, but space is limited. Please register in advance.
