How do the Arts shape our emotional and imaginative senses so that we can create a culture of civic life that respects and nurtures the diverse and plural sensibilities of those with whom we share the planet? What role does cultural creativity play in a world where communities are divided by ideologies of exclusion and division? The convergence of Beauty and Hospitality distinguish the moral vision of the Arts. Cultural hospitality is the ability — indeed the obligation — of the arts to welcome what is new, innovative, path-breaking, out of the box, into the realm of artistic practice and critical reflection. Unheard voices, marginalized identities, and minoritarian perspectives represent challenges that have the potential to transform aesthetic forms and techniques while enabling us to rethink and revise the cultural norms by which we define our artistic tastes and social traditions. Our panel will consider these questions from a range of practical perspectives brought to life by an element of spontaneous performance.
