The hybrid event, "Are the Arts Essential?", airs tonight at 6pm PT/9pm ET. "[Zeyba] Rahman and other thought leaders will discuss the book and how art has the power to create connections and provide hope. "
The book, "Are the Arts Essential?," features insight from 25 scholars, artists, and critics who wrote, "a collection of essays that highlight how the arts are a critical part of society, impacting climate change, combatting racism, promoting tolerance, influencing politics and so much more." Zeyba Rahman and Hussein Rashid (Building Bridge Program) host the conversation.
