The “third place,” a term coined by sociologist Ray Oldenburg, refers to places where people spend time between home (“first” place) and work (“second” place). These locations are essential for building relationships, exchanging ideas, reducing loneliness and expanding horizons. Clifton Cultural Arts Center is such a third place, providing physical spaces and opportunities to connect through visual and performing arts, as well as arts education opportunities. Held in conjunction with the CCAC’s “Third Place” exhibition, supported by FotoFocus, our featured panel of experts will discuss how third places enlighten us and encourage us to lighten up.
Featured Panelists Include: Photographers Alexandra Buxbaum, Emily Hanako Momohara, and Jens G. Rosenkrantz Jr.; Panel facilitated by Carissa Barnard, Deputy Director of Exhibitions and Programming for FotoFocus.
