Event Description
Panel Participants:
Edgar Endress, George Mason University, Courtney Bowles, People's Paper Co-Op, and Mark Strandquist, Performing Statistics

With the ongoing threats to immigrant communities in the United States, especially for the most vulnerable – undocumented migrants and Dreamers – who continue to experience profiling by police, risks of detention and incarceration, and potential deportation, how do sanctuary cities, like Philadelphia, harness the creative engagement and responses of artists? How can socially engaged art practices help communities imagine alternative approaches to immigration, policing, and sanctuary? Can artists help us to not only envision but also facilitate a more inclusive city and sustainable justice?

Join us for an evening with Rankin Scholar and visiting artist Edgar Endress (George Mason University) in conversation with fellow artists and activists, Courtney Bowles and Mark Strandquist, as they discuss the potential of aesthetic practices for social change and justice.
