— TWYMF Virtual Artist Brunch w/ George P. Perez

Hey Denver artists! To ensure the health and safety of our community, our monthly Talk With Your Mouth Full artist brunch is online for the time being.

In the wake of George Floyd’s death and the critical racial justice movement happening, we are readjusting Sunday’s program to focus exclusively on having a timely conversation. We want to use this as a platform to foster a meaningful and productive discussion led by artists from our community.

Starting at 11am, our Executive Director will be making a statement on the matters at hand. Following, George has developed some key questions regarding current events and the role artists’ are expected to play in times of crises. This program is intended to be a conversation amongst artists (not an artist talk)—and that requires participation. We encourage everyone to take part in the discussion via chat or chiming in on video.

We also plan to share local resources with the group on how you can support, learn, and participate in the cause. If you have helpful resources you’d like to share with everyone—where to donate, how to protest safely, recommended anti-racism books/articles—please have links ready to post into the chat or share via pdf.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday and having this necessary discourse.
