Join RedLine for our annual arts & social justice summit: 48 Hours of Socially Engaged Art & Conversation! The theme of this year's annual summit is Roots Radical: An Exploration into Indigenous Ancestry and Experience.

Roots Radical explores the dislocation of Indigenous identities from the Indigenous persons, and how perceptions of Indigeneity are often formed by dominant or white-supremacist narratives and/or perceptions vs. realities and experiences of thriving, living cultures.

Join us for two days of Indigenous-led talks, workshops, socially engaged art projects exhibitions, and more. There will be food trucks, libations, live music, dancers, and more! August 12-13, 2022.
