(Un)Comfortable Conversations: The Power to Identify

November 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event
Free

Hear from local writers, poets, and spoken word artists as they share brief and engaging stories of change centered around how they identify and how their sense of identity has shaped their lives and art.

How do the arts, humanities, and religion help identify the truth of who we are? How have identities changed over time? How does identifying with a group create unity? How does it create division? What does it mean to claim a new identity? How do the arts allow us to express our identities?

Writers and spoken-word artists from diverse backgrounds will honestly and courageously tackle these questions and more during this event in which participants will also be given the opportunity to reflect on and write about similar themes. A Q&A will follow between the audience and presenters.
