The Point: Disrupting Digital Policing
FREE VIRTUAL EVENT
In Conversation with ArtsEmerson’s Director of Artistic Programming, Ronee Penoi, as she moderates a conversation with Lauren Ruffin (Arizona State University, CRUX), Kade Crockford (ACLU - Massachusetts), and more!
ArtsEmerson’s public dialogues series, The Point, continues with a virtual conversation exploring digital safety and liberty for communities of color online. As technology continues to develop and further integrate into all facets of life, the over-policing of Black and brown Americans has evolved with it. In Boston and across the country people are innovating virtual spaces and fighting for policies that center and protect BIPOC Americans. Join ArtsEmerson’s Director of Artistic Programming, Ronee Penoi, as she moderates a conversation with Lauren Ruffin (Arizona State University, CRUX), Kade Crockford (ACLU – Massachusetts), and more! The conversation is available via YouTube and begins at 6:00pm eastern.
About The Point
At ArtsEmerson, the art is the provocation; conversation is the point. The Point is a conversation series that invites audiences to explore big questions in intimate settings. Hosted by a member of the ArtsEmerson team, local and national luminaries will offer their points of view on the urgent questions surfaced by the artists on our stages. Join us this season to dive deep into topics of cultural theft, government surveillance, and global approaches to decolonization.
