Thought on Tap, "Music, Art, and Social Movements": Wednesday, February 28th, 6pm

Join us on Wednesday, February 28th, from 6 to 7pm to listen to a panel of experts discuss questions on "Music, Art, and Social Movements."

Music and art have long been used by movements seeking social change in the United States and abroad. This Thought on Tap episode will explore how art and music can be a form of protest and means for political and social change. We will also discuss the impact these art forms have on current social movements.  The discussion will be facilitated by Lydia Huerta Moreno and will feature Britt Curtis, Executive Director and Co-founder of the Holland Project, Ruthie Meadows, Ph.D. (Ethnomusicology), Juan Carlos Guerrero Hernández, Ph.D. (Art History), Miguel Angel Gonzalez Saenz, (DMA student).  After the panel, there will be a special musical performance of protest songs of the 20th and 21st centuries in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Thought on Tap is a public engagement series that brings together diverse panelists from the University of Nevada, Reno, and the larger Nevada community for important conversations around timely topics.

Thought on Tap is brought to you by Core Humanities, the College of Liberal Arts, and Laughing Planet. Podcasts and transcripts of past Thought on Tap episodes are available on the Core Humanities website.
