MOCA Cleveland is partnering with For Freedoms, an artist-run Super PAC founded by artists Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman, in a two-year residency focused on a series of free, quarterly Town Hall discussions. Co-produced with The City Club of Cleveland, the nation’s oldest continuous forum for free speech, these programs provide safe platforms for topical conversations that seek to encourage a more active, collaborative, inclusive, and empathic community.

Inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s historic Four Freedoms speech outlining four essential human rights, the September program explores freedom from fear through the subject of migration. This event features panelists born outside of the United States who now live in this country, many of them in Cleveland. Using a method called Question Bridge, the panelists--along with anyone in the audience who self-identifies as an immigrant--will ask and respond to each other’s questions. The discussion will address both personal experiences transcending boundaries and finding community and also broader perspectives on how the movement of people influences society and culture over time. Audience members who do not self-identify as immigrants will be privileged listeners to this dialogue.

Co-presented with: The City Club of Cleveland and For Freedoms
Sponsored by: Ohio Arts Council
With additional support from: Margaret W. Wong Assoc. Co.
Community Partner: Global Cleveland
