Cases for Culture will feature collaborations among distinguished artists, humanists, policy makers, and entrepreneurs who promote the social contributions of creativity. The purpose is to multiply these contributions by generating HBS type cases that can inform new policy decisions. Brief narratives along with the measurable impact of creative interventions demonstrate how and why participatory arts work to address “wicked” problems, transversal by definition. Climate change, economic development, public health, education, violence prevention, immigration, etc., all require collaboration among academic, political, and economic actors. Our conference will explore how the arts and humanities bridge diverse fields and diverse communities.
“Cases for Culture” conference, hosted by the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University. December 2, 3, 2022.
