In the Dark Times will there also be Singing?
We are living in dark times. The threat of continued and expanded war, xenophobic travel bans, walls, and immigration enforcement, and the rise of authoritarian power have left many communities living in fear. In collaboration with the San Francisco International Arts Festival, The Center for Political Education will host a forum on June 3rd during which presenters will grapple with the politics of culture and creative expression in times of war, xenophobia, and inequality.
The forum will cover three primary areas:The Struggle over Creative Space and Resources, Art and Culture against and over Borders, and Art and Culture for Strong Movements. In each area, artists and culture workers actively engaged in political organizing in the Bay Area and internationally will offer insights and share practices to elevate the central role art and culture must play for efforts at social change to be successful.
If, as Bertolt Brecht noted, "In the dark times will there also be singing? Yes, there will also be singing. About the dark times, what sort of songs will be written and sung by artists and their communities in our dark times? Join us to explore the possibilities.
