The 2020 Mosaic Literary Conference: Black Utopia will explore the idea of how our futures can be explored through health, education, art, and activism; and present a cohort of creative thinkers and scholars who will share how we can envision, explore, and expand discussions around urban environments, creative practice, and health & healing.
The annual Mosaic Literary Conference (MLC) presents a variety of topical, historical, and culturally themed panels and workshops that connect to our South Bronx community and reflect the issues that both elevate and oppress local citizens — development, crime, and technology among other subjects.
MLC provides a platform for literature-based creative thinking and knowledge sharing, and invites educators, parents, community and arts organizations to take part in a series of programs that build social engagement and develop education strategies.
To register for this free event, which will take place at 03:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 12, 2020 via Zoom, please visit here.
