In the interest of addressing Rochester's racial segregation within the arts and culture sectors, 21st Century Arts and a new collaborative of community organizers have created a new endeavor called "At the Crossroads: Activating the Intersection of Art and Justice." The group, on Monday, October 9, will present its first event, Art Power Symposium, which includes a full day of workshops, performances, and networking for the arts and culture community.
The event is geared toward disrupting racism, white supremacy, and oppression through various artistic and creative practices. Participants include Reenah Golden, Henry Avignon, Tokeya C. Graham, Annette Ramos, and Rachel Y. DeGuzman.
The symposium is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the New Horizons Faith Center, 36 King Street (formerly the Frederick Douglass Resource Center). The fee to attend is $40 and includes lunch. Register in advance at artpowersymposium.bpt.me.
