“[Yo-Yo Ma] somehow found time to go past the cello and refashion himself into something bigger... He is the consummate ‘citizen musician.’” The Washington Post

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma’s career is testament to his enduring belief in culture’s power to generate trust and understanding. In this special talk, he will explore the role culture can play in helping us to imagine and build a better future, drawing on examples from his own life as a musician and citizen. Yo-Yo Ma’s presentation is rooted in the belief that, at a moment when our world is challenged by the pace of change and the divisions it can create, culture’s ability to create and share meaning is essential in shaping the next stage of our evolution. A Q&A will follow.
