Taking time to connect and deepen my practice through the For Freedoms Congress. . .
Hundreds of artists, curators, arts administrators, and academics are gathering in Los Angeles in advance of the 2020 United States elections. Thanks to generous support from For Freedoms and SPACES, I am fortunate to join as an Ohio representative. The first For Freedoms Congress, held from February 28 – March 1, is an anti-partisan platform to promote civic engagement, civil discourse, and direct action through art.
Founded in 2016, For Freedoms is an artist-led organization that models and increases creative civic engagement, discourse and direct action. We work with artists and organizations to center the voices of artists in public discourse, expand what participation in a democracy looks like, and reshape conversations about politics.
