For Freedoms Town Hall

Sat, Oct 13
11AM-1PM

FREE

Join us for a youth led town hall exploring concerns and issues important to the youth in our community. This event is open to all and will provide a platform for a youth facilitated conversation that seeks to encourage a more active, collaborative, inclusive, and empathetic community. The town hall is held in partnership with For Freedoms, Teens with a Purpose, and Virginia Beach City Public Schools.

More about For Freedoms: For Freedoms is a platform for greater participation in the arts and in civil society. Inspired by American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear— For Freedoms Federation uses art to encourage and deepen public explorations of freedom in the 21st century. Founded by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman, For Freedoms Federation encourages new forms of critical discourse. The mission of the organization is to use art as a vehicle to build greater participation in American Democracy.
