People who have saved this event:


A Pressing Conference is an installation by Macon Reed that recreates the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room in the White House and invites the public to step up to the podium and take their own portraits to share on social media via #apressingconference.


In this immersive installation, artists, activists, and scholars will respond to current political crises and social injustices as part of A Pressing Conference: Live. From speeches and manifestos, to poetry and music, performers will enliven the podium of this “press room” and invite viewers to reflect and express their political passions and visions. Featuring sets by poet Camonghne Felix, youth poet Imani Davis, and poetic sonic collective The Blk Hrs, led by Cyrus Aaron.
