In Praise of the Citizen Artist

Join Damian Woetzel, incoming president of the Juilliard School, for an interactive breakfast interview led by Eric Liu, founder and CEO of Citizen University. Drawing on his seven years as director of the Aspen Institute Arts Program, a tenure that concludes after this year's Ideas Festival, Woetzel will reflect on how artists are citizens, how citizens are artists, and how Juilliard and Aspen (and you) can spread this ideal.

Festival: Aspen Ideas 2018
