More Info + Register

June 10, 2021
Hosted by the Public Art Network Council

Ken Lum is an internationally recognized artist, founder of Monument Lab, and the Chair of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania’s Weitzman School of Design in Philadelphia. He brought his wide range of experience as a public art artist to Season 1 of the CCNC podcast miniseries with host Annetta Latham.


Join PAN for a Q&A with Mr. Lum as we expand on topics from his interview and take questions from the floor.

Following the Q&A, participants will break out into one of four discussion groups. Topic preferences will be considered in group assignments. Topics are:

  1. Monuments, Public Art, Public Space, and Social Justice: Contributing to this work
  2. Permanence versus Temporary: Best practices and adaptation within public art programs and management
  3. The Impact of COVID on Public Art Programs: Good or bad? Searching for silver linings
  4. De-Schooling Public Art Program Relationships: Artists, access, and municipalities; studio artists and public art artists

We want your voice and your perspective at the table.

Everyone is invited! Members attend for free. Bursaries are available for non-members. Email [email protected] to inquire about a bursary. 

Request for Content

CCNC requests submissions of examples of Indigenous creators, artists, and projects that have contributed to the cultural landscape throughout the pandemic. Submissions will be shared on the CCNC social media platforms for a wide audience of culture workers, artists, and arts appreciators on June 21, 2021 for National Indigenous Peoples Day.

What to submit:

  • Published digital articles.
  • Images, videos with full credit information and any message from the artist or community connected to the work.
  • Links to interviews, podcasts, music streaming profiles.
  • And more! We accept submissions from Indigenous artists of their own work, as well as submissions made on behalf of these artists. However, if you are submitting on behalf of someone, please make sure you have permission to share.

Please send submissions to [email protected] with the subject line National Indigenous Peoples Day submission.
