Art in a Time of Crisis
An open discussion touching upon the power of film, writing, and the arts as a whole during times of war.
Focus will be centered through the lens of Russia's egregious war on Ukraine, the determination of the Ukrainian people and their allies, and the role creativity can play in surviving the conflict, swaying hearts and minds, and documenting history in an age of unprecedented media access.
Michelle Daniel joins Pipeline Senior Executive Matt Misetich in conversation.
The audience will be allowed (and encouraged) to pose questions during the event. While the event is free, all attendees are encouraged to make a donation to major charity organizations supporting the plight of refugees from Ukraine.
The Ukraine Relief Network, a wonderful charity directly helping Ukrainian refugees.
