What does it mean to “call forth” freedom in an age of political change, unrest, and a pandemic? How should our approaches to research, community engagement, design, and planning change? What lessons can we learn from our ancestors and our lived experience?

The Texas Freedom Colonies Project has invited Dr. Naya Jones to help us navigate all of these topics in an upcoming live conversation. Please join us for this wonderful dialogue on the arts, freedom-centered scholarship, and healing. It is a great way to be intentional about how you want to enter 2021!

“Calling Forth Freedom” featuring scholar and healing arts practitioner Dr. Naya Jones will take place on The Texas Freedom Colonies Project Facebook page Friday, December 4 at 9:30 am Pacific and 11:30 am Central Time. This event is made possible in part by Texas A&M’s ACADEMY FOR THE VISUAL & PERFORMING ARTS’ new “Virtual Workshop Grant.”https://drive.google.com/uc?export=view&id=1BFJDCEx7CgeYWMHIPwMl__DwIJ9WE4iR
