Speakers: Leslie King-Hammond, Kibibi Ajanku, Brayaira Simms, and Loring Cornish

In the opening plenary of the 2018 Conference for Community Arts Education we hear from several key Baltimore figures who are shaping arts and activism in the city. Artist, curator, and art historian Leslie King-Hammond, founder and director of the Center for Race and Culture, kicks things off by sharing a brief history of Baltimore’s arts and cultural community and the ARTivist movement it has inspired. We then experience the creativity and stories of three local artist-activists (Kibibi Ajanku, Brayaira Simms, and Loring Cornish) who are making an impact and leading the way to a more hopeful and just future.
