We called and you responded. We had put out a statement and called for creative artistic responses to what is happening in Charlotte. And we received ~18 new entries in the 3 days, with several more people wanting to participate if there was more time. First of all, thank you! We are humbled, and frankly, overwhelmed by the response.
In a city still coming to terms with the recent happenings, it feels like we have become the unlikely “First Responders” of the art scene. And in a place which suffers from a lack of trust, we are grateful for the trust you have placed in us as a safe and welcoming place for your voice to be heard. We don’t take the opportunity/responsibility lightly.
While we don’t have enough time on the 20th to showcase all the wonderful ideas/proposals for presentations we received, we are seeking ways to see how we can include even more ideas and viewpoints, and continue this conversation – and would love to hear your thoughts on that. In the meantime we are very excited to announce the lineup for Vol. 16. It is a truly exceptional group of people – and also by far the most diverse lineup we ever had – not just in terms of race, but also age, topics etc.
Without further ado, the presenters for PKNCLT Vol. 16 are:
(Listed in alphabetical order – not the order of presentations)
Of all the events/programs we have done over the years, this could be the one with the most urgent relevance yet. We want you to be there, and help us figure out how we can continue and expand on this. Please help spread the word.
