Roundtables

ArtsEverywhere invites a convenor—either an individual, a team, or a partner organization—to pose a question as a provocation and invitation to several respondents from around the world. Some of the roundtables are responses to an ArtsEverywhere Inquiry or to other previously published work. Read the responses and join the conversation by submitting your own comment or response.
