Panel Discussion: Can Art Grace Our Troubled World? Kylyn Asian American Arts and Culture Festival


Excited to be a part of the KYLYN Asian American Arts and Culture Festival!

THURSDAY, June 6, 2024, 6:30pm, Ann Arbor District Library, Downtown

Panel Discussion

Can Art Grace Our Troubled World?

with Kim Jackson Debord, Jasmine Rivera, and Frances Kai-Hwa Wang

In a world often plagued by conflict, uncertainty, and inequity, art can offer a glimmer of hope and solace. But how exactly can art grace our troubled world?

This panel discussion will explore the power of art to heal, inspire, and bring people together. We will discuss how art can provide a platform for dialogue, foster understanding, and promote intersectional solidarity and social change.

Local APIA artists and leaders will share their insights on how art can make a difference in the world, and  offer practical methods and processes for individuals to use art to create positive change.
