In recent years a growing number of museums and art venues have initiated community engagement programs. Concurrently, art schools are attempting to confront both their lack of diversity and their lack of inclusion for the diversity that does exists. This event attempts to take stock of how Philadelphia’s museums and art schools are responding to these questions through staffing changes, new initiatives and resources. Drawing from Create Equity’s recent post, this panel will consider the strategic and intersecting goals of diversity, prosperity, redistribution and self-determination.

Participants include:
Blake Bradford, Lincoln University
Maori Holmes, Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania
Kelli Morgan, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
Damon Reeves, Philadelphia Museum of Art

Graduate Studies at Moore’s Social & Studio Practices department is bringing together artists and organizers to both critically and pragmatically engage in the discourses and practices concerned with art’s relationship to place, collaboration, ethics, material and interdisciplinary research. Through three degree programs including MFAs in Community Practice and Studio Art and an MA in Social Engagement, we are concerned with the role, history and potential of art in relationship to society. Through our classes, public programs, community partnerships, symposia and the work of our renowned students and faculty, we are in the world, asking challenging questions together.
