    Exploring the Power and Purpose of Arts and Education
    The Implements of Creation
    A Conversation Piece
    Can Art Save Lives?
    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    Hip-hop, film, comedy, video games—today, a moral and political debate rages on over the potential of these media to create and perpetuate a culture of violence. But can art be used to inspire peace, not incite anger? CIW gathers musicians, comedians, artists, community leaders and activists for a discussion of art’s potential to positively impact one of the most important, intractable issues Chicago, and America, faces today: gun violence. 

    What to expect: Common on writing music that inspires change; Kevin Coval on raising your voice Louder Than A Bomb; Garland Martin Taylor on how he made a controversial sculpture a Conversation Piece

    *This Talk is presented by GCM Grosvenor.

    *This Talk is co-presented by ABC 7 Chicago, Chicago Tribune, The Mash, iHeartMedia Chicago and RedEye Chicago.
