“I've not heard the world the way you do for a long time now.”

― Kao Kalia Yang, The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father

Join us for CHQ 2018 Week 7: The Arts and Global Understanding August 5th - 11th

Art can create a culture; it can cross borders; it can sing of possibility. In this week of performances, lectures and workshops led and influenced by the work of The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma, we focus on the role of art — particularly music — in a culture, with an eye toward cross-cultural collaboration and global understanding. We explore and celebrate cultures different than our own; we examine critically the path of good intentions leading from cultural tourism to cultural appropriation; and we look for ways that earnest understanding and a shared loved of our art and each other can perhaps change the world.

Check out the titles below, as well as our collection of Week 7 Speaker books.
