Power of Truths Arts and Education Festival





WHAT: Power of Truths Arts and Education Festival
WHEN: Saturday, April 29, 2023 - Sunday, April 30, 2023
WHERE: Bombyx Centre for Arts & Equity 130 Pine Street Florence, MA

Self-Evident Education’s Michael Lawrence-Riddell and Dr. Ousmane Power-Greene, in conjunction with the Northampton Arts Council, present an arts and education festival in Florence, MA for all members of the “teaching public”, defined broadly as anyone who is interested in helping others to learn. Our second annual event is part of an ongoing series of experiential, educational, and artistic conferences to push our public use of education to create a just future. Power of Truths will feature multiple keynote speakers, sessions throughout the day, music, cultural events and more.


The guiding principle for this festival is examining ways to use art or education to push conversations about multiple truths and how the powers of those truths can help us build a better, more liberated future—a world on the other side of racial inequity. Sessions will be geared toward multiple segments of the teaching and learning public.
