The Space Between10/12/2017 @ 6:00 PM - 12:00 AM Contemporary Craft
In conjunction with Contemporary Craft’s (CC) socially engaged art exhibition - Shelter: Crafting a Safe Home, CC has invited local cultural producers - Majestic Lane and David Oresick to participate in The Space Between on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 6 PM to discuss the role of creativity. A salon style speaker series, The Space Between, joins together fascinating and buzz-worthy local cultural producers in an evening of inspiring and revealing discussion. During each of the three evenings, Space Between speakers will talk about their backgrounds, the way they approach the creative process, their personal connections, and how they incorporate art into their work in community development. The presenters will engage the attendees in discussions through their personal creative journeys and CC’s current exhibition. This event is free and open to the public at CC’s Strip District gallery with a $5 suggested donation; attendees are invited to arrive early to experience the exhibition before the event. The Space Between is presented in conjunction with "Shelter: Crafting a Safe Home", a thought-provoking exhibition that explores the pressing public issues of displacement, housing insecurity, and the universally identified human need for shelter. Featuring 14 artists from the US and abroad, the exhibition examines creative responses to difficult topics through the inclusion of artworks that convey personal stories and experiences to demonstrate the local and worldwide impact insecure housing has on individuals and society. Shelter will be on view through February 17, 2018.
