5:00 p.m. cash bar, 6:00 p.m. program
In partnership with For Freedoms, an artist-run Super PAC founded by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman, Kemper Museum hosts a town hall discussion, moderated by Attorney Jessica Piedra, as a safe platform for topical conversations that seek to encourage a more active, collaborative, inclusive, and empathetic community.
Inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s historic “Four Freedoms” speech outlining four essential human rights, this program explores freedom from fear through the subject of migration. Panelists were born outside of the United States and now live in the Kansas City metro area. Using a method called Question Bridge, the panelists—and anyone in the audience who self-identifies as an immigrant—will ask and respond to each other’s questions. The discussion will address both personal experiences transcending boundaries and finding community, and broader perspectives on how the movement of people influences society and culture over time. Audience members who do not self-identify as immigrants will be privileged listeners to this dialogue.
