Risk Dialogues

Image from Edgar Miller's Handmade HomeLately there’s been a culture of silence around difficult conversations for artists and educators. This is a unique chance (inside Edgar Miller’s awe-inspiring “handmade home”) to discover space and strategies to question content, policies, and actions.

Recognizing what is compromised for the sake of prestige and financial sustainability, those gathered will reflect on:

What do we lose/gain when we take risks?
What are the costs of taking risks in a climate of fear?

Join us for this discussion led by Shawn Lent and Amanda Leigh Lichtenstein. RSVP required.
