Resistance and Rebellion is a day-long international convening exploring the role of art in revolution.
The convening will bring together contemporary artists, activists, critics, and writers to discuss the impact of art on movements for liberation. Looking at the future of resistance through the lens of history from rebellions to Black Lives Matter to uprisings in the streets, the convening will create a space for discovery and collaboration.
Throughout the convening, participants will have opportunities to see and support artists’ work and scholarship, participate in roundtables, and witness the brilliance of youth organizing and performance.
Resistance and Rebellion is intended to build strong connections between national and Twin Cities-based artists, writers, young people, educators, and activists working in movements for racial equality. We intend for the conversations started at the Resistance and Rebellion convening to continue, and for new partnerships and alliances to be built. Come to inspire or be inspired.
