On Sunday, August 26, join AAMP for the Collective Conscious Open House & Art Talk. This FREE community event explores the role artists and their art play in the present socio-political moment, and how such creative practices work to re-imagine black futures.
The program kicks off at 3 p.m. with an interactive open house, during which the public is invited to experience the Collective Conscious exhibition and pop-up performances by Philly-based poets Jamal Parker and Kenya Newsome. Attendees can also participate in a community-driven “Build Your Black Future” art activity led by Collective Conscious artist Lavett Ballard.
Then, at 4:30 p.m., the experience moves to AAMP’s auditorium for an artists panel discussion on the status of art and activism today, moderated by WURD Radio Host Stephanie Renée, featuring Collective Conscious artists Russell Craig, Keir Johnston, James Maurelle, and Tieshka K. Smith.
This event is free and open to the public, and is appropriate for all ages.
