In this lecture, Musicians Without Borders Director Laura Hassler looks at the phenomenon of activist musicians, a new breed of social change advocates and grass-roots organizers.

MwB director Laura Hassler looks at the phenomenon of activist musicians, a new breed of social change advocates and grass-roots organizers. How can musicians position themselves in the world of development, humanitarianism, and political activism? What is the special and unique offering that music brings to the complicated global issues of war and peace, refugees, political and social exclusion or inclusion? Laura shares MwB’s evolving theory of change and tells some stories of an organization that straddles questions of evidence and ideology, research and (sometimes) the unexplainable.

With special guests: Al Zayton Palestinian Dabke Troupe performing before the lecture.
