How do we as artists and makers address polarizing topics in our studio practice and classroom spaces? What does a socially engaged art practice or curriculum look like in the present day? Is cultural competency enough to ensure classrooms are sensitive to our students?

Join us in collective consideration of these and related questions during the second installment of The Arts League’s annual Artist Convening. This weekend long convening is an opportunity to connect meaningfully with other artists and arts educators interested in finding actionable means of workshopping their practice to be relevant in the here and now. Attendees will receive a thoughtfully curated resource toolkit, an opportunity to workshop ideas and syllabi with real-time feedback from local experts and peers and special tours of new exhibitions at The Arts League and beyond.

All event proceeds will support TAL’s arts & community programs.
