Mocktails and Conversations: Politically Engaged Art

Posted by dhabib

This panel will feature artists using different media to create artwork reflecting political themes that are relevant in our times. We'll delve deep into why each artist makes the work that they do and the impact that the work is having on each person's community.

Moderated by Judith Lynn Stillman, Pianist/Composer, Artist-in-Residence and Professor of Music, Rhode Island College


Charlotte Abotsi, Poet and Director of the Providence Poetry Slam

Kira Hawkridge, Artistic and Founding Director of OutLoud Theatre

Monique Rolle Johnson, Painter, and Art Educator

This work is made possible in part through funding and support from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities. The Council seeds, supports, and strengthens public history, cultural heritage, civic education and community engagement by and for all Rhode Islanders.
