Event Schedule

Aug 20, 2020
6:00 PM—7:00 PM

Get into the conversation! As we navigate this important current moment we bring together artists, audiences and communities for a series of intergenerational conversations via Zoom.  In connection to the Painted Bride’s Deep Roots Bold Future legacy, we invite you to join artists with deep Bride connections to discuss what this time is like from their perspective. Artists are our truth-sayers. Listen in as they share their thoughts and ask live questions. Let’s come together to create further momentum for the movement!
