CCBI Speaker Series: Social Activism and Street Art
March 12

In the CCBI’s second Speaker Series event, we’re back with the topic of street art through social activism on March 12th!

Joining us for this lively panel discussion are local street artists Elicser Elliot, Bareket Kezwer, Moises Frank (Luvs), Nick Sweetman, and Natalie Very B, as well as our moderator Parul Panday. The artists will discuss their process and experience with producing works of art located in the public realm, and their motivations ranging from explicitly political to narratives inspiring growth, community, and acceptance. This discussion creates a dialogue for emerging and mid-career artists about how activism and art are interconnected, and why it’s important to understand and be intentional about one’s participation in creating art in the public realm.

As a preview to our discussion the mural pictured above “2020-1955” by Elicser Elliott, Nick Sweetman, Sight, Spyone and photographed by Mark D Segal, touches upon the Black Lives Matter movement by featuring depictions of important moments from history leading up to present day.
