International Forum: Migration/Immigration

The Phillips Collection, 1600 21st Street, NW, Washington, DC
Saturday, October 22, 2016 - 2:00 PM

For the 2016 Phillips Collection—University of Maryland International Forum, leaders across disciplines will discuss artistic and curatorial approaches to visual narratives of migration and immigration. How can art tell stories of people on the move? What is the civic role of art and art institutions in raising awareness to promote social change? Participants will discuss the ethical and aesthetical capacities of Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series to bridge the humanities, public policy, and social sciences and inspire societal change and well-being in the context of the 21st-century immigrant experience.

The event includes two staged readings of short plays written in response to The Migration Series, panel discussions with thought leaders, and a creative response from Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran. The event will take place from 2-6pm.

Professor Julie Greene will be featured in a panel discussion at 4:30pm entitled, "Connecting Art, Societal Wellness, and Cultural Diplomacy."
