While there are many crises in our national politics and culture today, the solutions ultimately will come from people rooted in place and woven together in relationship. In this powerful keynote, Liu will share insights and strategies from his acclaimed work on the power of participation to positively change civic culture from the ground up, while also speaking to the arts in the public sphere as a dynamic vehicle for identifying and designing solutions.
