Town Hall: The Role of Free Speech and Creative Expression in Democracy

For Freedoms Town Halls are intended to drive civic engagement and dynamic dialogue through artful acts.

A forum for inclusive public conversation, this unique town hall will bring citizens together with contemporary artists, designers, and policy makers, welcoming many and diverse points of view.
