The For Freedoms town halls at MOCA Cleveland marry art and activism. The upcoming one in the series takes a look at prison reform and the U.S.’s broken justice system.
Titled “Faith, Art and (In) Justice,” it will look at artist- and faith-driven solutions to issues such as mass incarceration and reentry. The City Club of Cleveland’s Dan Moulthrop will moderate a panel that includes the Reverend Osagyefo Uhuru Sekou,Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry CEO Andrew Genszler, Cleveland artist/reentry activist Gwendolyn Garth and North Carolina artist Sherrill Roland. It’s hosted by For Freedoms founders/artists Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman.
The event is interactive, with opportunity for audience feedback and discussion. It’s free and open to all although registration is encouraged. There’s a 6:30 reception featuring Sherrill Roland’s Jumpsuit Project, followed by the program at 7:30pm.
