Long Table:
Censorship in the Arts

Man looking boldly away from the American flag.

Once again, freedom of expression has become a flashpoint in the American culture wars across a range of political and religious ideologies. Join a community conversation about how free expression and censorship impact the conception, making, and presentation of our work. As always, our open table welcomes your stories, thoughts, and questions.

Guest Host: Adelaide Matthew Dicken
Core Participants: Catherine Cabeen, Sarah A.O. Rosner, George Emilio Sanchez, Zakk Varnedoe

Curated by Senior Curatorial Director, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, this series of free conversations highlights important issues in the dance community.

Long Table conversations adopt performance artist Lois Weaver’s non-hierarchical Long Table format, encouraging informal conversation around topics of concern to the community.  Learn more here about Long Tables and how they work.
