Jonathan Page to give Gallery Talk at LCVA

Longwood Center for the Visual Arts (LCVA) welcomes Jonathan Page, director of Longwood Office of Citizen Leadership and Social Justice Education for a gallery talk on Nov. 29 at 6:30 p.m. The presentation, titled “The Danger of Othering: Using Our Platforms to Create Equity, Inclusion, and a Sense of Belonging,” will challenge attendees to consider situations of inequality in new light. 

“One of the major problems of the 21st century is marginalizing or ‘othering,’” said Page, “It is at the core of the most significant issues, conflicts, and challenges that we face regionally, nationally, and globally.”

This gallery talk is the first installment of LCVA’s “Break Glass: Conversations to End Hate” program series. Spanning over the next three months, the series has been developed in partnership with the Robert Russa Moton Museum and the Longwood Office of Citizen Leadership and Social Justice Education as part of  LCVA’s current exhibition: “Break Glass: The Art of V.L. Cox-A Conversation to End Hate”  which will be on display Nov. 4, 2017-Feb. 25, 2018.

The next event in the “Break Glass: Conversations to End Hate” program series will be a film screening of the PBS documentary “Slavery by Another Name.” The screening will take place at Moton Museum, located at 900 Griffin Blvd., Farmville, VA 23901, on Dec., 13 at 6:30 p.m.

Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. in the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts at the intersection of Third St. & Main St. in historic downtown Farmville. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
