Reparations is to Justice as Art is to Freedom: Linking Healing and Creativity
June 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
7:30pm – 9pm Eastern Time (US & Canada) via Zoom.
Free to the public! Registration required.
Join us for an interactive exploration of the importance of reparations for justice and art for freedom.
We are in the midst of a racial reckoning, complete with footage that makes apparent the need for repair. Throughout the country, there are small and large efforts to chart a path towards justice, which requires reparations. But what happens after we have repaired the past? How can we envision a shared future?
This lecture explores how we can and must reckon with our troubled past, even as we simultaneously engage in the active imagining of a liberated future. There must be wealth redistribution that acknowledges the ill-gotten gains of inheritance, and there must be a deep and serious creative imagining of another world together. We will preview the forthcoming Pendle Hill Aiming for Freedom workshop (August 2023).
