Preserving Art, Preserving Cultural Identity, 2/22, 7PM

When: Saturday, February 22, 2014 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Gildenhorn Recital Hall
Event Type(s): Forum

A militia-imposed ban on music was recently lifted in Mali, Trio Da Kali's home country. How is society impacted when art is removed? What is the role of art in the cultural identity of a nation? Panelists Lucy DurĂ¡n of the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies, Donald Kettl of the UMD School of Public Policy and John Schratweiser of Maryland Citizens for the Arts will explore these questions. Join us before the Kronos Quartet and Trio Da Kali performance and learn what role you can play in keeping the arts vibrant here at home.

Free, RSVP requested
