Alchemy of the Reset with Natalie G. Diaz

hosted and created by YBCA Senior Fellows Brett Cook and Liz Lerman

Wednesday 17 June 2020

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts presented Alchemy of the Reset with Natalie G. Diaz livestreamed on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Wednesday 17 June 2020 at 12 p.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC-7) / 2 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC-5) / 3 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC-4).

Alchemy of the Reset is a conversation series hosted and created by YBCA Senior Fellows Brett Cook and Liz Lerman. The Senior Fellows program centers interdisciplinary artists and curators who are interested in developing systems and structures that catalyze artist-driven change as leaders in our organization and in the life of our community.

Over several weeks, Cook and Lerman will be dialoguing with thought leaders, including artists, scientists, educators and more who are helping us to reset and create new systems in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, instead of simply snapping back to old ways. In line with the characteristic community building backgrounds of Cook and Lerman, this is about a heart and human centered approach, with opportunities for audience connectivity and engagement.
