Andre de Quadros: Motivating the Arts for Social Change

Conductor and human rights activist André de Quadros shares his perspective on the real and potential contributions of the arts to a range of social change projects and collaborations, particularly in public health, incarceration, and conflict resolution. Dr. de Quadros believes that artists have a social justice responsibility to work collaboratively to explore fully the power of personal and community agency, self-knowledge, and social change in dealing with extreme societal problems. His presentation will focus on work in American prisons and sites of conflict and poverty in Israel, the Arab world, and Latin America.
