Art, Artists, and the Narratives of Loss and Resiliency
Art, Artists, and the Narratives of Loss and Resiliency

"Artists have lived experiences of and about this violent behavior that can reshape our individual and shared narratives to support community actions even as we collectively pursue individual and group healings," said royal alley-barnes, Acting Director of the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS).

“This conversation could not be more timely,” said Chief Librarian Tom Fay. “The loss of life in our communities due to gun violence impacts everyone, and we are grateful to ARTS for convening artists to help us come together in stories, action and healing.”

Panelists discuss questions ranging from how art helps with resilience; the impact of gun violence on creating art; and how art can collectively help us dream of a new future.

Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell, City of Seattle

Tom Fay, Seattle Public Library

Rosette Royale, local journalist and editor
