Event description

Wrestling with Politics: Art, Design & Activism in Asia 

A Town Hall cosponsored by CCA Architecture Division, The President's Diversity Steering Group, The Experimental History Project, and the CCA Creative Citizens in Action initiative.

In recent months, the Philippines, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, and several other Asian nations have seen intense political debate and struggle. What are potential roles for artists, designers, and other concerned individuals in understanding, reflecting upon, and intervening in these events? How might we promote and practice forms of peaceful, open dialogue across political differences, both abroad and here at CCA?

We invite all members of the CCA community to come, share their perspectives, and engage in open-minded discussion in this town hall.
