Town Hall Seattle says
Does an artist have the right to generate art from a culture they don’t belong to? From music and film to poetry and everything in between, creators are faced with this question again and again. This panel discussion, in partnership with Seattle Repertory Theatre, shines a light on this topic through a behind-the-scenes look at “Disgraced,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Ayad Akhtar. Featured panelists include moderator Kristin Leahey, literary director; Ijeoma Oluo, Seattle artist; Catharina Manchanda, Jon and Mary Shirley Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seattle Art Museum; Natasha Marin, Seattle artist; and Zaki Barak Hamid, Humanities Washington Program Director.

“Disgraced” begins January 8, 2016 at Seattle Rep. A ticket discount will be offered to attendees of this discussion.
