We invite you to join us for a symposium directed by Asad Raza and Prem Krishnamurthy, and presented by Washington Project for the Arts.

We are living through a moment marked by many forms of fragmentation, political division, and social isolation, exacerbated by the global pandemic. This symposium explores the question of gathering within this context.

“How can we gather now?” is also itself a gathering and will be a shared collective experience. It collects a rich variety of experiential modes, from conversations to cinema to shared food to a “drum circle” of synthetic techno rhythms. Raza and Krishnamurthy have offered this urgent question to artists, theorists, and organizers from all over the world, who in turn have used it as a prompt for artworks, conversations, performances, workshops, and gustatory experiences.

We welcome you to join in, break bread with us, and experience togetherness.

The symposium will take place at Eaton DC in downtown Washington, DC from Friday, March 31 through Sunday, April 2.
