Visual Recap of “The Laundromat Project: Sanctuary”

March 24, 2017

The Laundromat Project held a public discussion around the theme of “Sanctuary” on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center.


With alumni artists from our Create Change program, we explored how artists and the arts can create and support places of refuge, especially in the current moment. The conversations were moderated by Saeed Jones, Poet & Executive Editor, Culture, Buzzfeed, and featured two rounds of discussion, the first with Salome Asega, Salvador Muñoz, and Katherine Toukhy, and the second Rasu Jilani, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, and Kameelah Janan Rasheed.
