About the Event
Discussion night on the topic of creative activism. Participants will have access to a syllabus with readings & media related to the topic and should plan to read the materials in advance of the discussion night. The discussion leaders, Emily K Hanks & Sonita Haynes will set up the basic syllabus; however, the syllabus is open and rolling -- meaning the participants can also add suggested readings & material for the group to consider and discuss.
