A DISCUSSION ON THE STATE OF ARTISTIC FREEDOM: 7pm
In an era when artists around the world are increasingly censored, persecuted, and restricted from moving freely across borders, this provocative and timely discussion addresses the global state of artistic freedom and the undeniable power of art to shape political and social movements. We’ll hear critical perspectives from at-risk revolutionary musicians Ramy Essam (Egypt) and Mai Khoi (Vietnam), as well as experts in the fields of human rights, academia, and law.
