Minnesota Street Project

San Francisco, CA 94107
|Event Type||Panel Discussion|
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?
