The program features a dialogue with a focus on regional contemporary perspectives for artists, educators, Museum personnel, students, and community members, to engage the region as we work to inspire advocacy, activism, and meaningful community involvement in the arts.

Panelists:

Diane Burko - primarily known as a landscape painter, in the past decade Burko’s art focuses on monumental geological phenomena and is at the intersection of art and science with a focus on issues of climate change.

Candace Clarke - Resource Development Director, Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County, former Director of Development at the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and Deputy Director of the Michener Art Museum.

Deborah White - community activist, educator, and longtime resident of Bucks County, Ms. White has been involved in projects dedicated to racial reconciliation through sports, including the Jesse Jackson Sports Foundation, Black Women in Sports Foundation and the Center of Study for Sports in Society, and has collaborated with the Michener Art Museum on education programs dealing with race relations.

Tatiana Bacchus - filmmaker. A Leeway Foundation grantee in 2014, Ms. Bacchus is currently in production on Freedom Denied, a feature-length documentary about Haitian Jean-Baptiste Edvard Pierre’s near decade-long battle for political asylum in the United States, as told by the attorneys and community activists who fought for his freedom.

Gabrielle Miller - student representative, Central Bucks West High School, National Arts Honor Society member. Gabrielle plans to pursue a career in Art Education at Kutztown University in the fall.

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.
