FSP@PPG: Arts Activism in Durham will be a roundtable discussion about the promise and challenges of the arts scene in Durham. Who are the audiences? Who are the artists? What are the strengths of the current arts scene and what’s missing? How do we create new audiences? How do we bring new types of art and artists to existing audiences? What types of spaces are available, and how do we creatively use those spaces? How does the building boom in Durham affect the arts? In what other ways is Durham changing, and what are the impacts of those changes? What are the funding sources for arts programming in Durham (public, private, and mixed)? Are there places or programs locally or elsewhere that seem to be ”getting it right” in terms of supporting the arts, cultivating creativity, etc? If so, what lessons might we learn from those places?

The scheduled roundtable panelists are: Laura Ritchie, Saba Taj, Shirlette Ammons, Caitlin Margaret Kelly, and Pierce Freelon. It will be moderated by Michaela Dwyer.

This program is the first in a regular series of public discussions co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics and the Power Plant Gallery. The Power Plant Gallery is an initiative of the Center for Documentary Studies and the Master of Fine Arts in Experimental and Documentary Arts at Duke University.
