In this talk, Dr. Hayes will discuss the challenges of using art and culture to develop, re-develop, build or re-build less privileged communities of color. The framing question is how do we use the arts to work collaboratively with communities of color to inspire change, empowerment, and reinvigoration so that the community is left in a better, stronger position than when the arts system entered it? From the lens of art museums, arts non-profits, artists, and local governments, I hope to expose where the structures breakdown, where they are sustainable, and to support a stronger community.

Date: Tuesday, October 6, 2015 

Time: 7-9

Location: Clark Lounge
