Creative Tensions: America’s Voice

Has America lost its voice? For better or worse, our policies, protests, and pop culture have traditionally had a deep impact both abroad and at home. Do the voices we elevate today amount to a collective identity? Should they? Who lays claim to America’s voice, and what happens to the voiceless? Creative Tensions is not a panel — it’s a conversation that moves. Participants reveal where they stand on an issue by where they stand in the room. Developed by IDEO and Sundance Institute, Creative Tensions is a fresh approach to group dialogue that encourages openness and inspires empathy.
