R.S.V.P. for this free event Tuesday, April 27 at 7 p.m. Eastern.
Our dreams inspire an ever-expanding universe of creation — from comic books and movies to art and poetry. And in the right hands, they can even spark transformational change. What inspires us to dream big? To not only imagine a better world, but work to make it a reality?
Join The Times’s Veronica Chambers, as she investigates the mysterious alchemy of imagination — through conversation, verse, art and song.
See a reading from poet and university distinguished professor at Virginia Tech Nikki Giovanni. A performance from singer, actress and radio host Estelle. And a wide-ranging conversation with the director of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” Peter Ramsey and the author N. K. Jemisin — all woven together with original animations from Reyna Noriega.
Then, sit in as The Times’s John Eligon talks with Brandon Dasent, Ashanti Scott and Thandiwe Abdullah — three bold young activists whose dreams of a more just and equitable society have inspired them to action.
