Moderator - Daniel Tucker is an Assistant Professor and founding Graduate Program Director in Socially Engaged Art at Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia. In his work as an artist, writer and organizer he develops documentaries, publications, exhibitions and events inspired by his interest in social movements and the people and places from which they emerge. This extends into a broader commitment to the intersection of art and politics, and to examining what those two categories of activity have to learn from one another - something he hopes to discuss with panelists and the audience gathered at Michener.
