GATHER: Conversations led by Black and Indigenous Change-makers in Suffolk County
GATHER is a celebration of the East End’s diversity, a recognition of fault and colonization, and, most importantly, an opportunity to build and implement new understandings. Devised specifically for community leaders, service workers, teachers, and developers, this series platforms the voices and experiences of various BIPOC scholars, artists, and leaders, providing both lessons on our past histories, and strategies and examples of how to progress forward together.
Join in one or all four conversations led by Jeremy Dennis, artists and tribal member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, Anthony Madonna, Guild Hall’s Senior Associate for Learning and Public Engagement, and a rotating panel of historians, artists, and/or leaders of the East End, including Tela Troge, Courtney M. Leonard, Donnamarie Barnes, David Rattray, and Georgette Grier-key. All sessions occur virtually over Zoom with an intimate group of 15–20 people, and include hands-on activities and briefs for a deeper connection to the topics discussed.
This series is produced as part of Guild Hall’s Student Art Festival 2021: Past-Present-Future. Proceeds from this series aid the education initiatives at Guild Hall of East Hampton, the development of Ma’s House & BIPOC Art Studio, and the institutions and artists involved.
