After Hours / Drinking About Art
A virtual soirée creating a dynamic online social space for the arts & cultural communities to share ideas and aspirations during these extraordinary times of crisis.
Raw Hope of Humanity Rising responds to the extreme challenges of the moment, using online civic participation as a platform for advocacy and critical dialogue: connecting artists, activists, and changemakers to share perspectives and overcome constraints. The series is a response to continued injustices surrounding the pandemic, Black Lives Matter, racial reckoning, gentrification and political polarization in Washington DC and throughout the country.
Webcast via the Third Space Network’s Crowdcast platform, which activates public dialogue across the boundaries of the local & remote to a global audience.
Organized by 3SN Creative Director Randall Packer in collaboration with 3SN Director of Welcoming & Belonging Monica O. Montgomery. The project is supported by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, Crowdcast Equality Program, and friends of the Third Space Network.
