Panel Discussion: Author and Artist as Activist


Local authors and cartoonists join together for a community discussion around art and political activism moderated by Nora Robertson.

To be a creative person with a political awareness and in fragile ecological times raises a range of concerns while also forging paths of opportunity.

With this in mind, Matt Bors, editorial cartoonist; PNCA faculty member Monica Drake, novelist, essayist; Mark Russell, author; Shannon Wheeler, cartoonist; and Lidia Yuknavitch, author and activist, sit down with moderator Nora Robertson to dig into how art can lead to political action.
