Presented by the Kent Bellows Studios, Brigitte McQueen, Director of The Union for Contemporary Art, will facilitate the discussion with Raven. Raven founded the University of Hip-Hop in Chicago, a multi-disciplinary approach to youth development that holistically engages academic skills, celebrates individual talents and artistic abilities, and empowers young people’s desires to bring positive change to society.  A panel with community leaders will follow, considering the meaning and impact of urban art and community. –Sally Deskins
