Contemporary Artistic/Cultural Production in an Era of Police States, Race Violence, and Corporate Globalization – featuring Ananya Chatterjea

All are welcome to join this discussion amongst students, faculty and community members, with renowned choreographer and activist, Ananya Chatterjea. How do we consider cultural creation in the context of the current political climate? What are concerns and issues in both North America and the Global South that inform and challenge the work? Participate in a discussion with Chatterjea and the artists in her company who identify as cultural activists about the experience and challenges in making “People powered dances of transformation,” and what sustains them and other contemporary cultural  workers in these dire times.
