ICA Forum: Racism, Public Health, and Contemporary Art

October 29 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

This program is free and will be offered on Zoom. Pre-registration is required in order to receive a link to the program.
In recent months, local and state leaders in more than 25 states have declared racism a public health threat; the City of Boston proclaimed this summer that “racism constitutes an emergency and public health crisis.” This public event, moderated by the Boston Globe’s Jeneé Osterheldt, is the second ICA Forum to bring together voices from the arts, government, and public health to explore this urgent topic, now in the context of two pandemics: racism and COVID-19.
Panelists include:
Jeneé Osterheldt, Culture Columnist, The Boston Globe
Dr. Karilyn Crockett, Chief of Equity, City of Boston
Bill T Jones, Choreographer; Artistic Director, New York Live Arts; Co-Founder, Bill T Jones Arnie Zane Dance Company
