Description

A night of poetry and conversation with

Tongo Eisen-Martin, Olu Butterfly, and Slangston Hughes

October 25th 7:30pm

Panel Discussion sponsored by LabBodies with support from Baltimore Office of Promotion and Arts

Join us as we celebrate the release of Tongo Eisen Martin’s Heaven is All Goodbyes with a poetry reading by local poets Slangston Hughes and Olu Butterfly.

Following the poetry reading, a panel discussion will examine the role of cultural organizing in contemporary America. This panel discussion will be centered around: What does it mean to be a person of color who is an arts administrator in 2017? What does it mean to be an artist in 2017? As the landscape of arts institutions and arts organizations shift, how do arts presenters that focus on work by people of color continue to thrive and survive?

How do we move past the micro-aggressions and other small infractions that limit us from moving forward? How can more privileged people be allies? How do you deal with microaggressions when you are in a position of leadership? What does it mean to be both non-hierarchical and express boundaries?
