Event Details

Who Do You Write For? 

Bringing together voices that can be found ringing within and beyond Chicago, this panel will explore the relationship between writers, artists, and their various audiences. How do writers best talk about work that doesn't conform to mainstream arts narratives? How do they build audiences and what is their role in building community? We will hear from speakers who straddle the line between artist, writer, and activist, and find out how they have overcome challenges to build their own platforms and share their work. 

Speakers:
Sophia Nahli Allison - Visual Journalist + Media Arts Educator
Felicia Holman - Co-Founder + Communication Director of Honey Pot Performance 
Jenny Lam - Artist, Writer + Independent Curator
Olivia Cole - Poet, Author + Activist
Diana Pando - Writer 

Moderated by Jennifer Patiño Cervantes, writer and Director of Development for Sixty Inches From Center. 

Before you come, check out the latest issue of Sixty's online magazine, "Margins", and the articles that inspired this discussion.  Save the date for our next event "Effective Approaches to Working Across Communities" on August 10, 2014. Find out more about that workshop here

Organizer

Sixty Inches From Center

Sixty Inches From Center is a non-profit  online arts magazine and archiving project that focuses on art as it exists outside of mainstream institutions in Chicago. Through arts journalism, events and unconventional partnerships we collect and archive the words and ephemeral materials of cultural producers digitally through our website and physically through an ongoing partnership with the Chicago Artists Archive at the Harold Washington Library.

We believe that the stories of contemporary artists, curators and writers are key components to understanding history and need to be preserved. Therefore, we provide a platform and capsule for the voices that we feel deserve recognition and a dedicated space in history.

Sixty Inches From Center is a 501(c)(3) organization that thrives and survives on volunteer support and donations.
