Event Details

Seattle Repertory Theatre and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, with the support of the Seattle Office for Civil Rights, 4Culture and KUOW, cordially invite you to a forum on Artistic Freedom & Artistic Responsibility. The event will take the form of a collaborative conversation, in which the audience is asked to raise questions, provide examples and offer strategies, while engaging in respectful dialogue.

Art plays a vital role in our society and can be a catalyst for dialogue and change. As the demographics of our country become more diverse, how do artists and arts groups approach new and historical work in a way that is meaningful, relevant and equitable for our audiences? In response to the spirited conversation happening in Seattle and the wider arts community, this curated forum will address issues of art, race and cultural representation. Join us in the conversation.

This free event will take the form of a curated forum featuring a diverse group of facilitators and respondents who will respond to your questions, including:

Braden Abraham, Interim Artistic Director – Seattle Repertory Theatre

Royal Alley-Barnes, Executive Director – Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute

Valerie Curtis-Newton, Artistic Director -The Hansberry Project

Jeffrey Herrmann, Managing Director – Seattle Repertory Theatre

Kathy Hsieh, Theatre Artist & Co-Executive Producer – SIS Productions

Annie Lareau, Actor / Director / Teaching Artist

Fern Renville, Managing Director - Red Eagle Soaring Native Youth Theatre

If you have questions or ideas that you'd like to see addressed at this event, please give us advance notice by responding to this email or calling 206-733-9926.

Please note that due to larger than expected response, this event has moved from the PONCHO Theatre to the Bagley Wright Theatre.
