About this event

Become a part of our roundtable discussion and live podcast recording session of The Creative Impostor, hosted by Andrea Klunder.

We are exploring the following questions from the viewpoint of both creators and consumers of multidisciplinary art forms:

Is one role of the artist to make people uncomfortable?

Is an aversion to discomfort the reason why our society often devalues the arts, especially in a time like this?

How can we use art to intentionally cause discomfort that elevates the conversations we are having?

We will hear remarks from 4 artists to start the conversations and then open to a conversation moderated by The Creative Impostor host, Andrea Klunder, in which attendees may share experiential insight, ask further questions, and we may come to some new understandings around art, discomfort, funding and society.

Please note, you are NOT REQUIRED to comment either verbally or by chat if you would prefer to simply be an active listener.

This Roundtable is limited to 16 guests and tickets are offered on a sliding scale. Click the Tickets button. You can choose between the Suggested Donation of $20 OR choose Sliding Scale and enter the dollar amount you wish to share.
