To support participants in their personal exploration of the exhibit theme Pandemics as a Portal to Change, we’re offering a panel discussion with local artists. Join us for a talk with local creatives to explore art as a tool for social change. Our panelists include:

Ashanti Files, Urbana Poet Laureate/Writer

Liza Sylvestre, KAM Curator of Academic Programs/Multimedia Artist

Keenan Dailey, Graphic Designer/Multimedia Artist

Elizabeth Simpson, Cooperative Conflict/Performing Artist

We are seeking submissions of art, performance, poetry, spoken word, dance, performance, and more for the Pandemics as a Portal to Change Exhibition, a community art exhibit where art becomes the way for us to envision worlds beyond the pandemic of COVID-19, without racism and other ’isms, and beyond the climate crisis towards envisioning our world anew.
