Art to Change the World (ACW) presents a non-traditional exhibit, “See. Say. DO.” that includes 11 days of diverse programming from October 4-14, 2018 at Squirrel Haus, an arts and community space in the Longfellow neighborhood.
Twenty established and emerging artists – local, national and international – have come together to create art around critical issues that they are passionate about – in the hopes of affecting real change. Each artist is working with an expert in the field or an individual who’s had intimate, authentic experience with the artist’s topic. These “topic voices” are helping to shape the dialogue, and to change the trajectory of the art process in a way that is enriching the experience for the artist, and hopefully for our audience, as well.
The Exhibit has 2 Opening Events (additional programming information, below):
Friday, October 5th 5:30-7:30 pm – Friends of ACW Fundraiser, followed by a dance
performance of Borealis Dance Company focused on the Hmong refugee story, (Tickets: $75.00, Reservations Required.)
Saturday, October 6 th 7-10:00 pm – Public Opening Night, with the artists and their expert/authentic voices in attendance.
Additional Programming Includes: 8 other workshops, 7 nights of performances with pre/post discussions, a Pop-Up “Take Action” performance evening, and a Non-Profit Networking night.
For a full list of programming and events see the website at: https://www.arttochangetheworld.org/events-b/. Tickets can also be purchased on the website for ticketed events. But, most events are Pay-What-You-Can and open to the public.
The exhibition and all events will take place at Squirrel Haus Arts. The building is handicap accessible w/handicap parking and entrance in the back of the building; On street parking is also available for visitors.
Art to Change the World is a diverse coalition of artists, educators, scientists, topic experts and other change makers who have joined forces in service of positive social change. We are employing the arts, education, audience engagement and organizational partnerships to provoke discussion, reflection and action, and to nurture an emphatic, socially-aware and action-oriented community.
