About the event:

The work of photographers, visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, poets and writers deals with many of the same challenges that keep policy makers up at night. In recent years diverse coalitions at the nexus of the arts and policy worlds have driven unprecedented investments and harnessed new platforms and technologies with the power to transform communities, spark innovation and economic empowerment, and strengthen human rights.

Cultural diplomacy is morphing before our eyes, extending beyond its traditional bounds into the space of humanitarian action and social movements. How can public policy harness fertile cross-sector collaboration and the excitement of disruptive technologies and translate these benefits across geographic and class boundaries? How can it empower rather than constrain or replace social movements? How can we tear down the remaining walls between government, business, and civil society in order to support the emergence and development of new ways of seeing, making, and doing on the global stage?

Today’s program brings together artists, policy makers, philanthropists, diplomats, cultural organizations, business, and thought leaders to explore the power and potential of arts-policy collaborations.
