AfterWord is a series of intimate discussions with leading practitioners in the arts who at California College of the Arts (CCA) or another nearby institution provided a lecture or conversation in a large public arena. The intention is to offer graduate students and faculty at CCA and elsewhere a more intimate, focused engagement with guests to the Bay Area in order to delve deeper into topics touched upon the previous evening.
