The theme? Art as political action.
The keynote address will be presented by Lorena Wolffer, a Mexico City-based artist and cultural activist. Her artwork addresses gender and women’s rights, and she has produced and curated a number of artistic projects with other artists across multiple mediums. Her work is a powerful voice for equality and cultural change.
After the keynote, there will be a discussion hosted by a panel of artists from across the country, followed by a workshop, of which there are three choices. The summit starts at 9 a.m. at the UNCG Auditorium on Tate St. After a lunch break, the summit will move to the EUC for workshops. Attendance is free, but please RSVP by September 10. For more information and the full schedule, as well as to RSVP, see the CVPA website here.
