A Pendle Hill First Monday Lecture with Brooklyn Meeting Friend and Penington Co-director Todd Drake
May 6, 2024, 7:30-9 p.m. Eastern Time (US & Canada) on campus at Pendle Hill (PA) and via Zoom.
Join Friend Todd Drake as he shares his lifelong journey and witness as a visual artist and social justice activist. Drake’s practice of witnessing and facing life’s great sadnesses with creative practice offers us all another North Star on our own journeys. He will speak to how he has been shaped by this practice, from making art with children in the West Bank to posting graffiti on the streets of New York City. Todd will also share about his exhibit, “Leading in Linocut – The Graffiti Prints of a Quaker Pirate,” currently on display at Pendle Hill.  You can follow Todd’s work on Instagram @QuakerPirate.
