Sunset Salons: Photography & Building Community
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. The 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 2020 FotoFocus biennial exhibition “Third Place,” our featured panel of experts will discuss how third places enlighten us and encourage us to lighten up.
