For Freedoms Town Hall: Freedom of Worship

May 17, 2018 / 7:00pm

Free and open to all; live-streamed on YouTube

In partnership with For Freedoms and The City Club of Cleveland

Freedom of worship is the first right outlined in the American Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Yet, spiritual and religious freedom continues to be a complex and divisive issue here and beyond.  Join people of different beliefs at this important For Freedoms Town Hall led by For Freedoms co-founders and artists, Eric Gottesman and Hank Willis Thomas who, with a panel of local and national experts, will explore religious expression, restrictions, and agency in America.

This program is the third in our series of town hall events in which MOCA is partnering with For Freedoms, an artist-run initiative founded by artists Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman and The City Club of Cleveland to create safe platforms for topical conversations that seek to encourage a more active, collaborative, inclusive, and empathic community.

For Freedoms Town Halls are generously supported in part by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council
