Event description
Join us for the first of this series of discussions offering Omaha an opportunity to share ideas and create community together.

About this event

Using Bemis Center’s current exhibition I don’t know you like that: The Bodywork of Hospitality as an entry point, this series of discussions offers Omaha an opportunity to share ideas and create community together. Co-facilitated by Denise Chapman and Zhomontee Watson, this conversation seeks to connect the exhibitions with issues directly impacting Omaha’s social, political, and artistic landscape. Formatted as an informal discussion and blurring the boundary of “expert” and “audience,” Public Assembly harnesses the creativity and vision of the community to hold space for collective meaning-making.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test and face coverings are required. Read more about our COVID Safety Policy here.
