Curator Culture: Eric Schmidt and Anna Deavere Smith
On Sunday, July 12, 2020, The Bass held a virtual panel conversation with Former CEO and Chairman, Google, Eric Schmidt, award-winning actress Anna Deavere Smith, and host Tom Healy, as they discussed the intersection of education, technology and contemporary activism.
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. We now ask questions such as – How do we respond to the profound economic and cultural disruptions that are unfolding during this global pandemic? What actions are being taken in the dismantling of systemic racism amid protests and outrage over police brutality?
Curator Culture is getting a reboot to engage these questions while The Bass and most cultural institutions must remain closed.
