A Blade of Grass believes in the power of socially engaged art and artists to participate meaningfully in creating a more equitable and compassionate future.

Rooted in the themes of A Blade of Grass Magazine Issue #3, the Fall 2019 Assembly will be co-presented by the Museum of the Moving Image and explore how socially engaged artists are challenging the way people see others and conduct our lives in ways that exclude the lived experience and creative potential of those who do not fit into the social norms and physical expectations of our society. How can art turn the disabling gaze of normative society toward the liberatory possibilities of those at the so-called “margins”?

After short film screenings and featured keynote by trans activist and filmmaker Tourmaline, attendees will choose from seven intimate and interactive workshops led by the below artists and organizations:

Full and Half-day Admission available.
