An interactive event featuring an all star-panel of industry experts and thought leaders

Pratt’s School of Art (SoArt) and the Fine Arts department are proud to present an evening of open exchange for the third annual SoArt Lectures event. 

This year’s event will bring together five thought leaders to share the ways that they have approached notions of safety in their practice. Participants include Ana M. Bermúdez, commissioner of the New York City Department of Probation; Jammal Lemy, creative director for March for Our LivesHank Willis Thomas, conceptual artist and activist; niv Acosta, multimedia artist and activist;​ and Tom Finkelpearl, commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA). The discussion will be moderated by Pratt Visiting Fellow and multidisciplinary artist and activist Shaun Leonardo

Prompted to consider a single word—"Belonging"—each panelist will address one related, critical question that drives their work. The audience will be invited to participate and further distill and respond to these questions, engaging guest speakers in an open exchange.

Please RSVP here. RSVP is strongly encouraged. Seating is limited and is first come first serve. Doors close strictly at 6:55pm. Guests are asked to stay for the entire program. Refreshments will be served throughout the event.
