Examples of engaging in a Sentence

  1. Sarah Munro:

    I think those days when people were out to be shocked and to shock are not where artists really are at the moment, artists are interested in engaging in ideas with the public and I think what's exciting about this edition of the Turner Prize is that it feels very now, very of the moment.

I see very few Brown people engaging in these conversations, or protesting, or donating, or speaking out. I don't think many even recognize their privilege. I know we have some Asian people who are our allies, but from my end it's not enough.
