A Community Dialogue Series
Join the ODEI and larger community for the Cultivating a Beloved Community public event on Tuesday, April 26 from 12–1 p.m. as we introduce the first selected artist for the Public Art & Community Dialogue Program and hear their thoughts about art and healing within the Black community.
Tune in for a powerful discussion that will shape our commitment to inclusion, where we will discuss how we conceptualize and visualize this journey towards strengthening our solidarity and connection across the African diaspora. Panelists will also share their lived experiences, reflections, history, culture and aspirations for the Black community.
Led by the Fred Hutch Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, the Public Art and Community Dialogue program provides an opportunity for employees and the broader community to be in dialogue about community solidarity and our pursuit of equity in research and healthcare. This program will foster ongoing dialogues with marginalized and oppressed communities to inform our commitment to inclusion, and how we represent that commitment in visual form.
Selected artists from underrepresented and minoritized communities will develop public art expressions for Fred Hutch banners and flags that will be informed by these dialogues. These images will reflect the themes, emotions, expressions, history, culture, and aspirations of the affinity communities and the commitments of Fred Hutch to deepen our anti-racist and inclusive efforts in scientific excellence.
