Day of Action
Exploring how culture can help to bring diverse communities together
Round Table Discussion
A group of arts, government, academic, and civic leaders came together for a round table discussion on culture’s role in an increasingly diverse society. Yo-Yo joined Oliver Decker (Director of the University of Leipzig’s Kompetenzzentrums für Rechtsextremismus- und Demokratieforschung), Thabet Azzawi (oudist in the Banda Internationale Dresden), and Anna Kaleri (author and board member of Lauter Leise e.V. Kunst und Demokratie in Sachsen).
The discussion was led by Duy Tra and presented by the Gewandhaus in partnership with the Stiftung Friedliche Revolution’s “Sounds of Hope” project.
We want to hear from you! We encourage all our participants to share their photos and videos with the hashtag #cultureinaction and to tag @Yo-Yo Ma!
Yo-Yo joined the Gewandhaus’s music education and outreach program, IMPULS, for an afternoon that spotlights the work of partner institutions throughout the east of Leipzig.
