NATIVE PERSPECTIVES : ON ARTS, CULTURE and JUSTICE
Doors open at 6:30pm

Programmed by the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation and We Can Listen, seven Native American artists share their perspectives through their art.  The first half of the program will focus on each artist's story through their work.

In the second half of the program, the discussion will focus on how the artists work addresses justice issues that affect Native communities locally and globally. The conversation will also include an exploration on how the artists work address issues around visibility, identity, essentialism and stereotype.

At We Can Listen, we strive to build community, educate, and share the positive impact that truly listening to diverse voices can have on us all. Through a cultural intersection of storytelling, film, music, art and personal expression we support individuals and grass roots organizations as they raise their voices on compelling social justice issues. We hope these personal stories will reach audiences they havent reached before, and provide the opportunity, for all who hear them, to increase their understanding of issues that require action and awareness in our greater community.

Moderated by Grammy-nominated local recording artist and theatrical performer Julianne R. Johnson, each We Can Listen event explores a topic of current, social, political, or environmental importance in an atmosphere of trust and respect for both speakers and audience alike. The We Can Listen production team acts as a supportive base by providing stage, format, and promotion for local organizations as they design their own program to specifically address their concerns and causes in a way that is meaningful for them.
