Using the Arts to Leverage Social Change
Thursday, February 16, 2017
105th Annual Conference, College Art Association, New York Hilton Midtown, East Ballroom, New York

In my capacity as managing editor for the College Art Association, I live-tweeted a session at the 2017 Annual Conference in New York. The session, titled “Using the Arts to Leverage Social Change,” featured three speakers in a large ballroom. Sadly, the attendance was poor.

The names of the speakers, their affiliations, and the titles of their presentations were:

  • Charles Gniech, Independent Scholar, “The Curatorial Process: Finding Engaging Works of Art That Are Topically Appropriate yet Easily Approachable”
  • Cheryl Jefferson, Independent Scholar, “The First Step toward Change”
  • Richard Laurent, Columbia College Chicago, “A Powerful Narrative”

In Terms Of count: unknown (I did not keep track).
