Huntington Arts Council Presents Conversations in the Arts: “The Arts and LGBTQA+”

January 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5 – $10

Conversations in the Arts offers participatory talks with artists and scholars from our community to help us enrich our arts experiences and more fully understand the values and contributions the arts add to society. Huntington Arts Council proudly offers this forum to help stimulate and promote the arts. Engaged inquiries and dialogues are a healthy way to explore ideas and facilitate collaborations and networking opportunities.

“The Arts and LGBTQA+” is discussed Jan. 9. LGBTQA+ individuals have not only made major contributions to arts and culture, but have also used the arts as a way to both inspire and foster community. LGBTQA+ artists have harnessed their creativity to fight misconceptions; promote progressive dialogue; and empower identity, self-expression, and the ability to tell one’s own true story.
Panelists:
Anu Annam, Artist, Art Educator, and Curator
Greg Fox, Artist and Writer
Christie LaSpina, LI Pride Chorus
Matt Rosenberg, Production Manager/Eastline Theatre
