    Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    As we continue to pass through an era of intense debate over issues that cut to the heart of the American experiment, culture-shifting artists are more important than ever. The creators who produce widely original and revelatory work wield an underrated form of influence, one that helps shape the spirit of an entire generation. At this Talk, we’ll meet artists, writers, performers and marketers who are taking a broader view of their work and are using their platforms to to steer the rest of us in what is—hopefully—a fruitful direction.
