Artists as agents of change and mediators of the personal and public imagination intervene into embedded social, cultural, economic, and ecological systems. In so doing they create new conceptual and material form to engage with the unexpected, impossible, playful, tragic, hidden, unlikely, and strange. These artistic objects and moments challenge our worldviews, open our minds, and shift our perspectives. In this series, six speakers offer diverse insights into the power of art to spark the deeper conversations and more meaningful interactions required to build the capacity for personal, social, and political resilience.

All lectures held in the Center for Creative Photography Auditorium, Room 108.
