The Foundry Theatre and Cornel West welcome you all to A Conversation on Hope. This event has brought together 300 artists and public thinkers, many for the first time, to improvise a performance of ideas; to engage in a series of creative conversations and encounters exploring notions of hope and its impact on the actions we do and do not take in the politics of our everyday lives. This event is itself a process ... an extemporaneous journey; and the first of many unique events designed to directly explore and challenge the relationship between artists and the larger society. Next stop ... to be continued.
We are looking through this 2-day event across two sessions - this one and again on November 14th.
This one will focus on the opening gathering FOOD FOR THOUGHT at which 300 people sat down for a meal of 4 courses and 4 questions provoked by participants guests Cornel West, Barbara Ehrenreich, Jonathan Kozol, Robbie McCauley and Vernon Reid.
