Michael Rohd
The Arts as Civic Practice: Listening is the New Revolution

Michael Rohd, founder of the Center for Performance and Civic Practice (Evanston, IL), will offer insights into developing collaborative projects with community and civic organizations. By engaging in a community-defined practice, his work reveals new ways of employing artists to build healthier communities. Michael is also the founding artistic director of Sojoum Theatre, a 17-year old ensemble-based company and 2005 recipient of Americans for the Arts' Animating Democracy Exemplar Award. This talk will be preceded by a short performance by hip hop/spoken word artist, beat boxer and youth educator, JB the First Lady.
