Changing Lives through Arts Education – a Panel Discussion

Join us for an Exhibit Opening and Panel Discussion. Mara will be speaking on a panel as a professional artist with disabilities, alongside other individuals in the arts education field.

Date and Time: Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 11:00 am - 12:00pm

Location: Lyndon Baines Johnson Education Building Auditorium
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, D.C. 20202

Description: VSA, a Jean Kennedy Smith Arts and Disability Program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, proudly presents UBUNTU: Yo Soy...Je Suis….I Am…Because You Are, a one-of a kind display of artwork by student-artists with disabilities from the United States and around the globe.
This year’s theme shows us that through shared art experiences, our humanity becomes bound in the humanity of those around us. In Southern Africa this concept is called Ubuntu: a word that means “human-ness” or “humanity towards others.” Colloquially, this philosophy translates to I am because you are. My humanity is connected to yours.
