April 17 - How to save democracy in the 21st century (an evening talk)
Harry Boyte argues that democracy in the 21st century requires a much deeper focus on civic agency—the collective abilities of citizens and communities to work across differences on common challenges. Boyte, who is co-director of the Humphrey Institute's Center for Democracy and Citizenship, will use art as a lens for discussing what it means to be a citizen and how we can "do citizenship" differently in his talk "How to Save Democracy in the 21st Century" at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 17, at the Weisman Art Museum, 333 East River Road, Minneapolis.
The event is open to the public and is connected to the Weisman's year-long exhibit Who is a citizen? What is citizenship?
