INTERGENERATIONAL PERSPECTIVES SERIES: "Empowered Production: An Afternoon for Artist Parents with Selina Trepp"

11:00AM-1:30PM (with concert to follow from 2:00-3:00PM)

Join us for an afternoon with artist Selina Trepp! Trepp will give an artist talk and lead a discussion about how she empowers herself as a mother and artist. She will discuss her multi-disciplinary art practice, and will go into detail about how parenthood has affected her artistic production. Trepp will explain how she navigates  logistics, politics, and money in her practice, and her interactions with institutions. Trepp’s talk will be followed by a Q&A/ discussion.

Following the talk, participants are invited to a networking lunch - and brainstorming session - guided by founders of Extended Practice, Sara Holwerda and Angela Lopez. This session will allow individuals to focus on making connections with other artists parents and to envision how some of Trepp's strategies could apply to their own practices. Participants will explore what strategies they can build on to empower themselves as artists and mothers.

Registration required. Cost: $10. Lunch included in registration. Childcare provided!

Event presented by Extended Practice.

Viking Economics: A Discussion with George Lakey

In Viking Economics—perhaps the most fun economics book you’ve ever read—George Lakey dispels these myths. He explores the inner-workings of the Nordic economies that boast the world’s happiest, most productive workers, and explains how, if we can enact some of the changes the Scandinavians fought for surprisingly recently, we, too, can embrace equality in our economic policy.
