Bridging the Divide: AWAD collaborates with Pen + Brush during Armory Week 2017

As we all grapple with how to face a world that looks, feels and almost is completely upside down, the role of art is more critical than ever.

Art has the capacity to freely reflect dissent, provoke empathy, and understanding, and offer solace through expressions of sheer humanity, beauty, and love.

This collaborative panel discussion on Thursday, March 2nd, in New York City, is set to prompt a productive dialog between artists and the arts professionals who work to support their voices. The event hashtag #ArtWomenUnite echoes our embrace of ALL women, working together in unity during changing times. 

P+B and AWAD, as organizations formed in the spirit of alliance to champion under-recognized voices in the arts, fight everyday on behalf of creative voices in need of support systems.

For this discussion, we aim to bring together artists, gallerists, curators, organizations, critics, institutions, and the audience for an open forum to discuss our roles as allies in this new era. This will include an open forum with the audience in NYC and virtually, we encourage you to bring your voice, bring your opinion, and don’t dumb it down.

P+B is a safe space that welcomes productive, frank, dialog.
