ATTENTION Temple Humans!

We have been cooking up some cool ideas on how we can really foster collaboration and support for our community. Starting January 2017, we are launching programming that supports creative residents from the Temple building, Five Points, Curtis Park and RiNo areas, to create social change.

 

Talks

Hosted by PlatteForum, a regular series of presentations which present topics in art and/or social change, each one featuring BOTH a Temple resident artist paired with a local change agent. These lectures could range anywhere from the content of your artwork, to urgent social justice issues, preferable both, and how they connect. All talks are free and open to the public.

Each presenter of the duo is paid a $150 stipend for their partnership presentation and together will create one 90-minute evening event. This stipend includes compensation for your planning and setup time.

Please have a conversation with Rebecca Vaughan, Artistic Director at PlatteForum, rvaughan@platteforum.org  prior to submitting your application to discuss recommendations for a partnering neighborhood change agent.

Even though dates will not yet be identified, partnering pairs must agree to propose together prior to submitting applications.

Dates for the 2017 Season, all occur from 6-8pm at PlatteForum:
Tuesday, January 10th, 2017
Tuesday, February 28th, 2017
Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

All further dates TBA

Please submit the following information to Rebecca Vaughan, Artistic Director at PlatteForum, rvaughan@platteforum.org  no later than November 14th at 9am.

  1. Full contact information for both speakers in the confirmed pairing, including email address and website.
  2. Proposed lecture topic and title (max. 250 characters) Topics must integrate art (any creative practice) AND a social issue that is relevant to our world.
