Looking Inward: Raise Your Voice
Featuring Carl Joe Williams, Rashid Duroseau, and Brian Duran
It takes courage to stand up for what you believe in. It takes even more to inspire others to stand up with you.
Join artist Carl Joe Williams and educators Rashid Duroseau and Brian Duran as we explore works of art by artists who use their voices to respond to and raise awareness about current events. We’ll look at how art and media can raise up or stifle voices for change, what causes and passions inspire real action, and how to take that insight into our classrooms, workplaces, and everyday lives to make a difference.

In this interactive, three-part speaker series, we invite leading artists and educators to weigh in on culture and this American moment. By examining art and the impact it has on us, our guest speakers look at where we’ve been, where we’re going, and what we can do to shape that future for the better. As an added bonus, educators and activists alike will walk away from these discussions with concrete ideas and strategies to use in their work and classrooms. 1.5 hours of educator professional credit available with educator ticket registration.
