How can art be used to transcend artificial borders and create dialogue among our communities?

Inspired by histories of fortifying, transgressing, and constructing borders between peoples, nations, and ideas, join For Freedoms and the MFA for a town hall-style event. 

For Freedoms is an adaptive national, artist-run initiative to increase civic participation. As the first artist-run super PAC, For Freedoms uses data to map and mobolize the existing cultural infrastructure of art in the United States toward broader civic participation through identification, activation and dispersion.

Discussants include:

Layla Bermeo, Kristin and Roger Servison Assistant Curator of Paintings in Art of the Americas
Eric Gottesman, co-founder, For Freedoms, artist
Steve Locke, professor of art and art education, Massachusetts College of Art and Design 
Sunny Pai, administrator, Boston Public Schools

Includes an interactive art experience with writer and visual artist Annie Weatherwax.
