Art has the power to help communities process and heal. Two of Minnesota’s leading artists are lighting the way forward as we process deep pain and confusion and setting us on a path of healing after the murders of Mr. Philando Castile and Mr. George Floyd. Be part of a Critical Conversation with gifted artists Ta-coumba T. Aiken and Seitu Ken Jones as they reflect on creating art in these tumultuous times, how art sparks change at personal and societal levels, and how we build our futures in the Twin Cities with equity and inclusion so that everyone thrives. Minnesota Humanities Center CEO Kevin Lindsey will host this interactive and vibrant conversation.

Refreshments and a light meal will be served. This event is part of a series of Critical Conversations, created in partnership with the 2023 Wakpa Triennial Art Festival, presented by Public Art Saint Paul.
