About

We are looking for volunteers to assist with the fourth and final event in the Art and the Landscape program-an innovative platform for engaging the community and inspiring conversation. Volunteers will be responsible for assisting with set up and break down, welcoming guests, answering questions, and helping us make sure participants have a meaningful experience.

*This event will not take place at The Old Manse but at another location in Concord, TBD.

More about the event:

In the spirit of a New England town hall meeting, the public is invited to share their thoughts about The Meeting House. After three lyceum events, it is time for the experts to quiet down and allow the public to speak. The artist and curator will be present, but will not make any formal presentations, they are there to listen and respond as needed. A moderator will lead the conversation.

Featuring: The Public, Sam Durant, Pedro Alonzo, moderated by Mary Jane Jacobs, curator and writer

The Meeting House is a platform for inspiring new ideas in relation to the intractable structures of racial discrimination and segregation. Based on houses constructed by the first free Africans in Concord (1770’s) the pavilion structure creates an open, transparent framework that points to the future. The Meeting Housewill host a series of public programs, entitled Lyceum 2016, inviting visitors to break out of the narratives that keep us from imaging and producing the equitable social relations that we seek.
