How do arts curators not just critique society, but help support and build just worlds? This public conversation brings together performing arts curators to discuss how they imagine, support, and build communities and worlds through public arts programming, with a particular focus on how curators take risks. Curators hail from a range of institutions including San Francisco/Detroit's Arab.AMP, Akron's National Choreography Center, Oberlin's Oberlin College/Mga Tsismosa, Detroit's Temate Institute for Black Dance and Culture and Detroit's Sidewalk Festival.


This event is part of the Arts & Resistance Theme Semester and received funding support from the Arts Initiative.

Lunch will be provided.
