Arts + Design Mondays: Together: Reinventing Politics, Reimagining Health
Mondays at 6:30pm, free and open to the public online

This year’s theme focuses on the aesthetics and politics of being “together,” online and offline, in educational contexts, in civic contexts, and in our personal lives. Our Arts + Design Mondays speaker series is aptly titled “Together: Reinventing Politics, Reimagining Health,” giving us the opportunity to explore how the arts and digital technologies constrain and enable our ability to engage politically and to craft a world in which all citizens can thrive.
