SEPT 10 – JACK WATERS & PETER CRAMER ENGAGE IN COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS @ 7 PM
At Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance (BAAD)
2474 Westchester Avenue, Bronx, NY 10461
BAAD presents Courageous Conversations – a free community/education forum that is a mix of topical talks and resilience workshops led by leading thinkers and doers from the arts, media and politics, followed by a facilitated/open community conversation. The invited speakers/artists/activists/artivists present work and/or give a talk (essentially we consider it making an offering to the room) on ways they are able to make art, organize, and thrive (and/or struggle), while living upstream in this country (and world).
Our first iteration of the series in 2017 featured poet Pamela Sneed, writer Sarah Schulman, journalist Steven Thrasher, Trans/GNC activists Jamal T. Lewis and Kiara Saint James, poet StaceyAnn Chin, artist Dr. Zanele Muholi, Bronx City Council Member Ritchie Torres, writer Hari Ziyad, blogger/immigrant rights activist Andres Duque with graphic activist Julio Salgado, TV Producer Rose Arce, and others we admire.
