Artists Talk Series

The Artists Talk Series is offered to a global audience complementary by the Foundation.

The Artists Talk Series provides a platform for artists to share their career life experiences, highlight obstacles along their path, and to demonstrate how they were able to confront and overcome obstacles. Artists also frequently depict their latest work highlighting how the work came about and its meaning to them personally and to society overall. There is a moderated question & answer segment where the audience asks questions of artists directly. Typically, Artists Talk Series are recorded and loaded onto the Foundation’s YouTube channel.
