Unleash your radical imagination about our collective future! In this talk, we will explore how artists can work for social change through strategic partnerships and hear from our featured guests: Kathy Dickhut, deputy commissioner, Chicago Department of Housing and Economic Development; Dorothy Dunn, director of America: Now and Here; Indira Johnson, artist and coordinator of The Ten Thousand Ripples Project; Lisa Yun Lee, director of the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum; and Jason Reblando,  photographer. This panel is moderated by Dawoud Bey, artist and Columbia College professor. The panel will be followed by a conversation about how these projects and institutions can be sites of cultural resistance.
