Afternoon of Conversation


At the core of humanity, we are care. We are love.

Afternoon of Conversation


Common, an Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Grammy award-winner, will open the Afternoon of Conversation with Arthur Brooks, the president of the American Enterprise Institute. They will discuss Common’s recent book, Let Love Have the Last Word, which explores love as an action and a tool for self-betterment and healing humanity. Harvard Professor Cass Sunstein talks to Facebook Founder & CEO Mark Zuckerberg about some of the biggest questions facing the internet — including government regulation, shifts to privacy, and innovation.  Pop-Up Magazine will appear for the first time at the Festival with their latest issue. The touring magazine is created for a stage, a screen, and a live audience. Contributors tell vivid, multimedia, nonfiction stories, accompanied by illustration, animation, photography, and an original score performed onstage by their musical collaborators, Magik*Magik
