Artists, curators, scholars, and art facilitators recognize that cultural initiatives must respond with more agility and alacrity to the realities of inequity, in all of its forms. How those responses are effectively enacted is a more complex set of questions. This conference will focus on the political potentials of care and compassion as practiced in the arts. Participants will reflect on the differences between hearing and actively listening, and between speaking with and speaking to, in a variety of art-centered exchanges.

How can we amplify inclusive, polyphonic narratives based on lived experiences, instead of the perceived authority of academic or fine arts expertise? How might art workers conceive of their role as facilitation for collaborations and conversations about justice taking place outside cultural institutions? Over two online sessions, we will explore creative, curatorial and activist projects focused on toppling hierarchies, empowering BIPOC voices, reimagining history, and centering the voices of historically marginalized authors and creators.  Hear more about cultural initiatives locally and internationally—making change now.

Registration information and event links will be shared here as they become available.

This is event is sponsored by the Evelyn Danzig Haas ’39 Visiting Artists Program.

To Scatter or Sow: Diaspora in Contemporary Art serves as a central event for Wheaton’s campus-wide initiative to consider Diasporas: Economies, Boundaries, and Kinship. The title of the show is taken from the Greek root of the word, and evokes not only the dispersal inherent in diaspora but also the potential for rich growth.

The exhibition will be presented both virtually and on the Wheaton campus.
