Freedom Forums 2017- A Conversation on Freedom
September 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Talk freedom, personal, artistic and civic with a group of accomplished poets, activists and performers–Alexis De Veaux, Jericho Brown, Tina Chang and Aja Monet– in Federal Hall’s Grand Rotunda. Hear what freedom means to them at this critical juncture in American democracy, and join the conversation with your insight and experience. Additional readings and performances by the talented Poets in Unexpected Places.
Presented by the Harbor Conservancy, Freedom Forums seeks to use literature as a prompt for public discussion about issues pertinent to our democracy today. The inaugural edition of the program is set beneath A Living Thing: Flag Exchange, an installation of American flags by conceptual artist and social interventionist Mel Ziegler.
This program was funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
