Everyone could use a little distraction during these difficult times. That’s why ArtServe is presenting a virtual event to talk about the power of art activism, featuring “ChangeMaker” Dr. Corinna J. Moebius.
“ArtServe Live Cultural Convo” is a virtual discussion series examining the art world through the lens of cultural content creators as well as cultural organization leaders and entities which provide cultural engagement with the community.
The event is happening August 10 from 3-4 p.m., and is free for the public to watch, comment, and ask questions on Facebook Live and Zoom.
“This will be a substantive conversation on finding solutions through the power of art activism,” explained ArtServe Marketing Director Ed King in a press release. “We want to facilitate a meaningful, important discussion, and we plan to leave everyone who attends this event with the tools to be an active participant in the creation of a better world, to help bring the community together and to precipitate positive change.”
According to the press release, Dr. Moebius has worked to make cities and communities more equitable, inclusive and ecologically resilient. She is the director of Imagine Miami, the South Florida civic engagement initiative of Catalyst Miami, and has facilitated large-scale community dialogues and developed a series of “Changemaker Conferences” during which grassroots leaders connected for knowledge-sharing, capacity building and leadership development. She also designed South Florida’s first summit on arts, culture and civic engagement and leads annual workshops on arts and civic engagement for the ArtServe-affiliated Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute.
Joining Dr. Moebius as guests will be Broward art activist Niki Lopez and Pinellas County-based Leigh Davis, co-founder of “The Words Project.”
