Women, Arts, and Social Change
Join us for FRESH TALK on gender, equity, the environment, identity, education, health, social and economic opportunity, and more.
Women, Arts, and Social Change is a public program initiative highlighting the power of women and the arts as catalysts for change that launched in October 2015. FRESH TALK, the signature program of the initiative, expands the dialogue on what it means to be champions of women through the arts. Programs feature curated conversations with leading innovators and thought leaders from a range of disciplines discussing cause-driven topics that are relevant to diverse audiences today.
Add your voice to the conversation: each program concludes with a Sunday Supper served family-style, or Catalyst, a cocktail hour with a topic and a twist.
