Land of the Free? Think Tank on Art, Activism & Entrepreneurship

Sponsored by: Broad Stripes and Bright Stars

Artist, activist, and entrepreneur Jay Critchley will open a conversation on social practice as art. When Jay founded the Old Glory Condom Corporation, he redefined patriotism in the fight against HIV/AIDS and won a controversial three-year legal battle for its US Trademark, and that was only the beginning. In this practical, artist-led workshop on civically engaged art, community members from all backgrounds and experiences are invited to participate. Bring a new idea you’re not sure how to execute, a project you’d like to pitch, or a work-in-progress for feedback!


Our events are made possible in part through the generous support of The Arts Council of Greater New Haven and Wells Fargo.
