LOCAL>> Communities of Care: A COVID Keyword...

Presented by Headlands Center for the Arts at Streaming Arts

Participants in “Communities of Care: A COVID Keywords Conversation” will consider the lessons we have learned, or failed to learn, about concepts like public health, risk management, criminalization of disease, and collective power and action from artists and activists responding to the ongoing HIV/AIDS crisis as we face the unpredictable landscape of COVID-19.

While COVID-19 and HIV/AIDS are different diseases that need different solutions, our experiences of both pandemics serve as a reminder that artists and marginalized communities often develop and use some of our most potent tools in response to crisis, while institutional insistence on business-as-usual often magnifies harm and inequity.

Participants include:

Theodore (Ted) Kerr (moderator), a writer, organizer and artist focusing on HIV/AIDS, community, and culture.

Kneeshe Parkinson, Positive Women’s Network Policy Fellow and State Lead for Missouri

Sarit Golub, Ph. D., Professor of Psychology at Hunter College and Director, Hunter Alliance for Research & Translation
