AWI Sanctuary Space presents: What’s Representation Got to Do With It?
Artists + mental health advocates Rebecca Lieb and Calvin Walker will discuss representation and its intersection with art and mental health.
Some topics we will explore together include the challenges for marginalized groups to tell their stories, what it really means for underrepresented folx to see themselves represented, and the inherent limits of those representations for tackling systemic inequality.
