CHIT CHAT

Photo by Kevin Todora

WHAT are CHIT CHATS?

This program engages learning through the art of conversation. Chit Chats increase dialogue, encourage debate and stimulate exchange in visual art and culture. We actively encourage the development of critical perspectives as well as engage with issues that affect contemporary culture. Currently held on-site, we will expand the program off-site to area school and university classrooms as exhibiting artists will “chit chat” with students. We would like the Chit Chats to include national and international speakers addressing contemporary issues quarterly.

Este programa promueve el aprendizaje a través del arte de la conversación. Chit Chats multiplica el diálogo, anima el debate y estimula el intercambio en las artes visuales y la cultura. Alentamos activamente el desarrollo de perspectivas críticas así como nos comprometemos con los temas que afectan la cultura contemporánea. Hoy en día el programa se lleva a cabo en nuestras instalaciones pero será extendido para llevarlo a las aulas de escuelas y universidades del área para que los artistas en exhibición "chit chat" con los estudiantes. Nos gustaría que Chit Chats incluyera presentadores nacionales e internacionales que trataran temas contemporáneos trimestralmente.
