Curator Culture: We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled World..

Curator Culture: We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled World..

Moderated by writer and activist Tom Healy, Curator Culture presents a series of conversations to propose, provoke and debate creative solutions to the urgency of our time. Over the past two years, the Curator Culture series at The Bass has brought together prominent artists and leading architects, scientists, journalists and influential leaders from many fields for public conversations about fostering creativity in a complicated world.

The world has suddenly become much more complicated. How do we respond to the profound economic and cultural disruptions that are unfolding during this global pandemic? What opportunities exist for new ways of solving problems and working together? What actions are being taken in the dismantling of systemic racism amid protests and outrage over police brutality? Curator Culture is getting a virtual reboot to engage these questions while The Bass and most cultural institutions face the COVID-19 pandemic.
