Event Description


In an age of fake news and heightened political tension, many Americans have lost faith in the media and question the role and impact of journalism. Americans are increasingly turning to partisan sources of information yet free societies depend on unbiased news and information to monitor and question those in power. In this era, how can community-powered journalism help us parse fact from fiction and create authentic trust and understanding among different perspectives?

Join WBEZ’s arts and culture reporter Carrie Shepherd on March 12 for an interactive experience at Weinberg/Newton Gallery. This event highlights the gallery’s current exhibit, Return to the Everywhere, and features self-reflective and participatory exercises by Imagination Theater and a conversation about truth and community-powered journalism with:

Michelle Kanaar, Creative Director of Borderless Magazine
Judith McCray, Executive Director of Juneteenth Productions and Adjunct Professor at DePaul University’s College of Communication
Justine Tobiasz, WBEZ’s Media Archivist

Doors open at 5:45 pm so guests have time to experience Return to the Everywhere and speak to exhibiting artists Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson, Sonnenzimmer and Sadie Woods about their work.

This event is presented in collaboration with Weinberg/Newton Gallery.
