Conversations in the Arts continues to be an engaging and increasingly popular program that we currently present via facebook LIVE. The premise of Conversations has always been to bring the community together with artists and scholars, providing an environment that supports and encourages collaboration and the exploration of ideas. This platform, where we can openly share diverse viewpoints, experiences and opinions, has been more relevant and valuable than ever. It is not important whether or not we agree or disagree; it is important that we have the conversation. All are welcome to join us.
If you are interested in curating one of these events, or have a suggestion for an arts related topic of discussion, please submit a brief outline and suggested panelists to email@example.com. Limit your submission to no more than 500 words. Look here for examples of previous topics and model your proposal accordingly.
These events will all be presented via Facebook LIVE. Click facebook.com/HuntingtonArts/live/ to access the Huntington Arts Council Facebook LIVE event.
