About Alchemy of the Reset
Alert! Seismic shifts underway. Culture, politics, and policy are transforming in real time. In the wake of ongoing racist police violence and the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and countless others, and while we continue to face the COVID-19 crisis, our society is igniting the potential to leap forward. How can you engage in the reset? How can you support a radical reimagination of what is possible? How can you push against old structures and work to rebuild?

Alchemy of the Reset is a conversation series hosted and created by YBCA’s Chief of Program Meklit Hadero and YBCA Senior Fellows Brett Cook and Liz Lerman—three artists who have dedicated their creative practices to inspiring systems and structural change. Over several weeks, Hadero, Cook, and Lerman will engage in dialogue with other artistic and creative leaders whose body of work and stories of reset aim to inspire members of our community to take action.
