Community Conversation-Fear
Thursday January 12, 7-9pm

Artspace and artist Charles Williams invite you to join us for a Community Conversation to begin this New Year with the cultivation of a new and hopeful outlook. Charles will begin with a brief discussion of his work in Lost + Found and the concept of fear and then moderate an open conversation about fear with the audience. We’ll discuss a variety of things we fear: post-election results, law enforcement, failed resolutions, etc. We want to talk about ways we can learn from the experiences of each other and overcome our fears.

Interactive Art Experience
Friday January 6, 6-10pm

Stop by on First Friday and share your fears on the Fear Anonymous wall in our Lobby. This interactive piece compliments Charles Williams exhibition, Lost + Found, and will spark discussion during our Community Conversation.
