Opening Keynote - Arts and Culture in this Urgent Moment

Friday, June 15, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

We need to be discussing new visions for our country, our communities, and the roles that arts, culture, artists, and creative workers can play. Who better to drive forward this crucial conversation than our opening keynote speaker, Marc Morial. As president of the Urban League, the United States’ oldest and largest community-based organization, Mr. Morial is one of the country’s preeminent civil rights leaders. In this inspiring opening, hear Mr. Morial’s thoughts on what artists and arts organizations need to be doing right now as we look to transform the country—and the connection of those who live here to their full creative lives—into the equitable vision we dream it can be.
