Allyson Allen - Censorship vs Artistic Expression, presented by SAQA

Online Event
2:00 pm EST (GMT/UTC -5)

Have you ever created a piece that captured an emotion or opinion you felt strongly about, only to be told it's too edgy or controversial? Do you struggle with watering down the context of your work, hoping for more widespread appeal? If so, you might be compromising your artistic expression and caving into censorship instead of using your unique voice to convey your passion. We'll talk about creating work that represents what's important to you as an artist and which venues are appropriate for which types of work.


Textile Talks features weekly presentations and panel discussions from the International Quilt Museum, Quilt Alliance, Studio Art Quilt Associates, and Surface Design Association. The programs are held online at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific) each Wednesday.
