This panel will feature artists using different media to create artwork reflecting political themes that are relevant in our times. We'll delve deep into why each artist makes the work that they do and the impact that the work is having on each person's community.

Charlotte Abotsi, Poet and Director of the Providence Poetry Slam
Kira Hawkridge, Artistic and Founding Director of OutLoud Theatre
