Featuring Five-Time Grammy Winner, Jazz Artist and Composer Terence Blanchard
The Center, along with the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, hosted a free panel discussion in conjunction with Terrence Blanchard and the E-Collective’s performance earlier this month. Panelists representing a range of artistic disciplines discussed their specific work in addressing issues of race and ethnicity through artistic practice. We had a full room for the conversation; but if you didn’t get to attend, the full video is below.
The panelists were Terence Blanchard, composer and trumpeter; Carlos Donjuan, visual artist and Senior Lecturer at University of Texas at Arlington; Janeil Engelstad, Founding Director, Make Art with Purpose; Curtis King, Founder & Director, The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, Inc.; David Lozano, Executive Artistic Director, Cara Mía Theatre Co.; and Lily Cabatu Weiss, Executive Director of the Dallas Arts District. The conversation was moderated by Veletta Forsythe Lill, former Dallas City Councilmember and founding Executive Director of Dallas Arts District.
