CoRE: Let Freedom Ring


10:00–11:30 a.m.

CoRE Conversations: Let Freedom Ring

In this conversation we will be adding to your Inclusiveness Network of Knowledge (INK) by discussing the possibilities of life where all races, genders, sexualities, and other identities are welcomed and accepted. Oppression is a reality—what would the world be like if all ways of being were welcomed and integrated in an intentional way? What would it be like to live in a world where oppression was in our past and not part of our present?

The ARTery will be closed to the public until 11:30 to provide a safe space for honest conversations.

CoRE Conversations is a series of facilitated community dialogues that begun as Conversations on Race and Empowerment (CoRE) during an exhibition series in September of 2017 with Dr. Charles Smith and Heather Hart. This exhibition created a space for honest conversations and it was evident there was more to talk about after the exhibition closed in January of 2018. As new series are added each month, dialogue now encompasses the impact of race, gender, sexuality, and power in our country and community. Reverend Lex Cade-White, an experienced facilitator, uses data-driven resources to engage participants in approachable and inclusive discussions through creative expression and self-reflection. This series equips participants with the vocabulary and knowledge needed to further their understanding of privilege and the historical and current relations among diverse groups. The CoRE Conversation series gives tools to empower participants to go out and make a difference in their communities.
