arts & culture
In the first episode of the arts & culture portion of our series, we spoke with Minneapolis based artists & activists Sean Garrison to discuss the role and responsibility of artists in their communities and how the murder of George Floyd and the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement influenced his practice. We urge you to tune in for a particularly moving discussion about the power of art for community healing and his personal experience as a Black man and father in America.
