A generative space of listening and sharing amongst activists, artists and scholars for future impact presented by the Wallach Art Gallery.

The Wallach Art Gallery created the Uptown People’s Assembly to bring together artists, arts professionals, scholars and community members to hold an event of art, testimony and conversation. The focus will be on our current compounding crises: COVID-19 and the civil unrest decrying the racist killings of Black people by police officers. Our neighbors are invited to speak and participate in this event.
