Can the Arts Shape Public Policy?


The challenge of navigating an increasingly complex and unknown world demands new creative ideas. Join us on Wednesday, November 5th from 6:30-8:30pm as ZERO1 launches the American Arts Incubator, an international arts exchange program planned in collaboration with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs that incubates new ideas for community engagement through new media and mural art projects.

This special evening will include a panel discussion featuring Roselyne (Cissie) Swig, Bay Area cultural civic leader; Derek Slater, Policy Manager at Google Inc.; and Sean Hewens, IDEO. org's Amplify Program Director and In-House Counsel in conversation with Jaime Austin, Curator and Director of Programs at ZERO1.

We look forward to introducing you to the inaugural artists—David Burke, Felipe Castelblanco, Kendal Henry, and Xiaowei Wang—and sharing more about their plans to team up with youth and underserved populations in Laos, The Philippines, Papua New Guinea, and Mongolia to spark new ideas for community engagement through art programs.

Event capacity is limited, so we encourage you to reserve your seat today.

Doors open at 6:30pm for hors d’oeuvres and networking, panel discussion begins at 7pm
