Arts and Culture in a Changing America

A discussion with Roberta Uno and Jose Antonio Vargas moderated by Steven D. Lavine

Co-presented with The Frame, the arts and culture program on Southern California Public Radio/KPCC.

This lively discussion on the cultural ramifications of accelerating demographic change accompanies the launch of two L.A.-based initiatives of national scope: “Arts in a Changing America,” or “ArtChangeUS,” housed at CalArts, and “#EmergingUS,” backed by the Los Angeles Times. ArtChangeUS, led by director, dramaturge and longtime Ford Foundation program officer Roberta Uno, explores the effects of a widening range of creative perspectives, discourses, networks and modes of organizing across the arts. Meanwhile, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and documentarian Jose Antonio Vargas is heading up #EmergingUS, a digital magazine focused on the intersection of race, immigration and identity in multicultural America. CalArts President Steven D. Lavine welcomes Uno and Vargas for a wide-ranging discussion and Q&A on the two new initiatives, the issues at stake, and the role of public engagement in each effort.
