July 13, 2017 Washington, D.C.
This event is FREE and open to the public!
Join us at 5pm for an open skate session and artist networking, followed by the conversation at 7.
Can the arts play a role in countering, instead of spurring gentrification? How do an architect, a skateboard activist and a muralist work to support thriving communities? Join us at Gallaudet University’s DC Pavillion for an interactive conversation on urbanism and place keeping between Rome prize winning architect Teddy Cruz; artist, teacher and skateboarder Ben Ashworth, and muralist Alice Mizrachi. This installment of the ArtChangeUS@Kennedy Center National Conversation Series includes an open skate session accompanied by a DJ and emcees. The event will also be live streamed on Okayplayer and The Kennedy Center’s Facebook Live.
