One Beat Impact says
A one-of-a-kind music event spotlighting OneBeat artists’ diverse backgrounds in social activism and innovation, this evening is produced in collaboration with Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute, UW World Series, and World Affairs Council, and focuses on cultural place-making through live performance, storytelling, and conversations about how music can make a positive social impact, and address issues from gender inequality to cross-cultural dialogue to environmental degradation. Part town-hall forum, part heartfelt show, this event will bring together organizers, musicians, community members and scholars as we take a soul-searching, uplifting look at how the arts can truly be of service in creating more peaceful communities and a more just world.
