Solidarity: Giving Voice Through Art
The First Friday team at the Cantor Arts Center invites students to attend Solidarity: Giving Voice Through Art. This quarter has been incredibly difficult: the pandemic, protests across the nation in outrage over the murder of George Floyd, and renewed hopes for social progress. The arts offer ways to express complicated emotions while people struggle to balance social distance and the need to participate in communities speaking out.
Join Stanford students on Thursday, June 18th, from 6-7 PM PDT for an evening of student creative responses, hosted by Darnell "DeeSoul" Carson from Stanford Spoken Word Collective, and featuring student performances, artist conversations, and more.
The event will be available via Zoom Webinar (Register here for access to the link) and Facebook Live (Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University).
To help put your emotions into words, poet Aristotle Johns will host a Poetry Bureau with typewritten poems for students. Please sign-up here by Friday 06/12 if you’re interested in a poem [25 slots available]
Brought to you in collaboration with the Anderson Collection, Stanford Live, The Institute for Diversity in the Arts, and the Cantor Arts Center.
