The 2020 Arts Summit explores the complex and varied relationships between art and community. Through conversations, presentations, and performances, we will examine: What is the value of art from one community to the next? What is the value of the artist? What happens when art works against community? What is the responsibility of the artist? How do institutions interrogate their roles, responsibilities, and practices within these ecosystems?
