Art and Culture as Political Resistance with Joshua Allen

  • Black Cultural Center 716 Langdon Street Madison, WI, 53706 United States (map)

The CWC is honored to host guest facilitator Joshua Allen at the Black Cultural Center. "Art and Culture as Political Resistance", is designed to push participants to consider how art and culture serve as a catalyst to challenge the intersectional issues pertinent to our society, that cannot otherwise be combatted through policy. Participants will view an original mini-documentary, "Femme in Public SA", debrief, and engage in dialogue that challenges, inspires, and galvanizes them to be agents of positive change. 
All identities are welcomed to attend, but this is a safe space, and those violating community standards will be asked to leave.

*Refreshments shall be served.
