Arts, Inequality, and the Truly Rich Society
What is the role of art in improving, enriching, and enhancing community, especially in places burdened with poverty? How can we ensure that all have access to ways to express themselves, and to find their voice as artists and as citizens? And how can art and culture challenge us, in a time of deep inequality, to make a truly rich society? This session examines these questions and more.
