Kitchen Table Talks are virtual gatherings where we can come together as a community to talk about tough issues facing us as a society and as Christians. It is CIVA’s goal to end each Talk with viable solutions and steps toward action. Kitchen Table Talks are operated in a webinar format moderated by CIVA Board Member Steve Prince. Each Talk will host panelists who are relevant voices on each topic. Due to the virtual format, spaces are limited. Registered participants will have an opportunity to submit questions prior to each session. Find more information and registration links for each session below.

About the Moderator

Steve Prince

Steve A. Prince serves as the Director of Engagement and Distinguished Artist in Residence at the Muscarelle Museum of Art at William and Mary.  Prince is a printmaker, sculptor, and graphite artist who takes his message to the streets. He uses black-and-white language to preach and teach an original and innovative vision. He spreads a message of hope and renewal to the global community through his art and philosophically through the cathartic nature of the Dirge and Second Line, a funerary tradition from New Orleans. He received his BFA from Xavier University and MFA in printmaking and sculpture from Michigan State University. To Steve, “we are all living epistles, whether we want to be or not.” He has conducted workshops, created community based projects, designed public commissions, and shown his art across the U.S. and internationally.
