Love Between the Covers, an NEH-funded look at the $1.2 billion romance publishing industry, will air at Cinemapolis Tuesday October 20 at 7:15 pm. Admission is free.

U.S. Representative Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) introduced a bill in 2014 proposing to prohibit the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) from funding any project relating to the research of love or romance (H.R.5155). Yet, popular romance is the highest selling book genre in the world today, representing the largest share of sales revenue in the industry. Moreover, 84% of romance readership are women, and women dominate the author rolls.

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
