AT&T Performing Arts Center presents Addressing Issues of Race and Ethnicity Through the Arts
AT&T Performing Arts Center will host a free panel discussion, with panelists representing a range of artistic disciplines discussing their specific work in addressing issues of race and ethnicity through artistic practice. The topics they’ll want to address include art as social critique, depictions of racial and ethnic identity, and art’s innate ability to unite communities.
Panelists include Terence Blanchard, composer and trumpeter; Carlos Donjuan, visual artist and Senior Lecturer at University of Texas at Arlington; Janeil Engelstad, Founding Director, Make Art with Purpose; Curtis King, Founder & Director, The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, Inc.; and David Lozano, Executive Artistic Director, Cara Mía Theatre Co.
Discussion will take place on the Skyline Terrace at Winspear Opera House.
The panel discussion is free to attend and will precede the Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective concert that evening in the Wyly Theatre at 8 pm.
