What is culture? Why does it matter? And how can it help us, here, today?
Cellist Yo-Yo Ma has said that "Culture — the arts, the humanities, the sciences — helps us to understand our environment, each other, and ourselves. It helps us to imagine a better future. It helps turn 'them' into 'us.’”
At a time when the pace of change challenges us not only to find new solutions, but also to agree on them, culture offers us a source of creativity and connection. Culture can help us to collaborate and find common ground in addressing the most important issues facing our society.
