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. In this meeting, works of art will be displayed with the intent of catalyzing discussion about freedom of speech. Can an exploration of creative expression bring us closer to our collective values? 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.
