Organized in collaboration with FWM, the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, and Public Space One on the occasion of the FWM exhibition, Jacolby Satterwhite: Room for Living, Philadelphia poets and artists will work together to produce this experimental public program led by poet An Duplan. Working across mediums, the artists will generate strategies for catalyzing immediate and radical futures of marginalized peoples in the current pressurized climate of the United States. How can artists of color ensure their own 'room for living'? Registered participants will receive more information as this group of artists and writers convenes and finalizes the format of this event. Please join us for the culminating program and conversation in January 2020.
