The #MeToo Age: Power & Gender Equity in the Art World
February 21, 2018 7PM

Beginning in the film industry last year, we have been witnessing more and more #MeToo women speaking out, sharing their stories, and becoming empowered like never before. Has this movement extended into the art world?

Two-thirds of participants in professional development classes and workshops are people who identify as women. Many seek permission for their actions, and most shy away from self-promotion. Can we bring the strength and empowerment of the #MeToo movement into the art world in a way that helps increase women’s visibility, marketability, and influence?

With over 22,000 women contacting Emily’s List for information on running for office, how can we help propagate a similar surge in the art world?

Join us for a town hall forum conversation with Hrag VartanianYasmeen SiddiquiAlpesh Kantilal Patel, PhDZoe CharltonTim Doud and Courtney Fink. Moderated by Sharon Louden at LACE on February 21 from 7-9pm, beginning with a special performance by Future Clown before the discussion.

Sponsored by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation and Artiststhrive.org.
