Immediately after the showing of the feature film, Enough is Enough: The Jonny Gammage Story, everyone can take part in a powerful yet relaxed conversation about the many issues brought up by the work. Co-facilitated by artist dialogue-facilitator Maritza Mosquera and program curator Thomas Poole, participants will explore ideas present in the works, our present concerns, joys, and visions for self and our community. We will work to move the conversation to the next level by proposing an action for change that is agreed upon by the group and executed at a later date.
Maritza Mosquera has practiced liberation and diversity work for over 20 years; leading workshops and assisting in community transformation objectives through art and dialogue. Thomas Poole is a filmmaker, curator and media educator.
