In this Arts Citizenship Talk (ACTnow) Brazilian singer and activist Xênia França, visual artist Chanel Compton and medium, conjurer and crafty millennial Juju Bae (@alittlejujupodcast) have a not-to-be-missed conversation! Together, the three will explore the role of African spirituality in their daily lives, artistry and struggle to create a more just global society. The conversation from this event will be included in an upcoming episode of Juju’s podcast “A Little Juju.”

From themes of racial violence and cultural appropriation to multiculturalism and gender equality, the work of The Clarice's 2020-21 visiting artists is complex, provocative and deeply sensitive. Arts Citizenship Talks (ACTnow) are opportunities to hear from these artists about the issues reflected in their works. These conversations are an invitation to act now!

Join us after the event for a Virtual Lobby informal conversation with Clarice staff and artists Chanel Compton and Juju Bae! This will be your chance to mingle with the artists and connect with other art lovers. Virtual Lobby links will be provided by our team during the ACTnow event.

Engagement on Campus and in the Community: During Fall 2020, Xênia França will virtually visit School of Music students to discuss music and social engagement.
