That's Not How the Story Goes: How Art Smashes Stereotypes
Date Saturday September 23
Time 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location Details
Minnesota Street Project
1275 Minnesota Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorLava Mae
Please join Lava Mae & Themes+Projects for a conversation about how art smashes stereotypes.

We are honored to feature a group of extraordinary internationally-acclaimed artists, including:

* Writer Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket)

* Visual artist Ana Teresa Fernandez

* Ethnomusicologist Mina Girgis

Their wide-ranging subjects - the orphaned Baudelaire twins, the Nile River, and the disappeared in Mexico - challenge our perceptions, provoke new thinking, and offer a more human view of circumstances we cannot easily imagine without the intimacy of art.

They'll be joined in conversation with community changemakers Doniece Sandoval, founder/CEO of Lava Mae, and Barbara Goldstein, Board Chair/President of ZERO1, a Silicon Valley-based arts, science and technology network.

We hope you can join us for an artful + thought-provoking afternoon, and please feel free to widely invite friends + colleagues.


2pm to 3pm Experience an art installation in conversation with artists + curators, and enjoy Themes+Projects latest exhibitions.

3pm to 4pm Join our panel discussion to explore:

* How important is empathetic storytelling in our incredibly polarized culture?

* Can art move us towards a shared humanity, despite our perceived differences?

* Can it substantively shift a community's perspective of 'the other', beyond the artistic moment?
