Arts & Social Change (ASC) is a network for arts administrators, artists, social service professionals, government representatives, and social justice leaders from around the Pacific Northwest to address and build on the role that diverse arts play in creating awareness, inspiring understanding and developing policies to address cultural equity and social change.

The ASC Planning Team has invited Robert Garfinkle, lead architect of the exhibit 'RACE: Are We So Different?' currently showing at the Pacific Science Center, for a thought provoking lunchtime roundtable with local arts activist leaders responding to the exhibit and exploring how its content might inform our own social change efforts in the arts.

This panel session will serve as a springboard for Arts & Social Change to begin a community visioning process. Please join us for this exciting discussion and to help us vision together for the future of Arts & Social Change.

Coffee and refreshments served
Lunch options: Brown-bag or Reserve lunch catered by Hidmo Eritrean ($7/plate)


EXHIBIT BACKGROUND:
***********
'RACE: Are We So Different? explores the myth and meaning of race. We all know that people look different. Throughout history, those differences have been a source of strength, community and personal identity. They have also been the basis for discrimination and oppression. And while those differences are socially and culturally real, modern scientific understanding tells us race and human variation are complex, and challenges us to think in new ways. This exhibit, developed by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota, combines media resources, interactive components, imagery and community programming to invites visitors into a conversation about the realityand unrealityof race.

ASC BACKGROUND
**********
The staff from Washington State Arts Commission, 4Culture, Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and Seattle Center have been meeting for years and have together coordinated three Ethnic Arts Showcases since 2006 to promote some of the powerful and engaging work being done by ethnic creative communities in Washington State. In 2012, the inter-agency effort expanded to include Seattle Office for Civil Rights and The Association of American Cultures. With additional membership and funding, the steering committee saw an opportunity to plan a symposium that would gather folks who engage with or are from arts and/or social change communities from the Pacific Northwest region to explore what it means to be transformative change agents via the arts. A second event was programmed at the Washington State Arts Alliance's Cultural Congress in the Spring of 2013.
