Skoll World Forum Closing Plenary 2017

By Skoll World Forum (other events)

Friday, April 7 2017 11:45 AM 1:00 PM

After a week of conversations and provocations around the theme of how we create common ground in a landscape of rifts and divisions, we conclude the 2017 Skoll World Forum with a performance that embodies the enduring project of partnerships that reach across great divides. The Silk Road Ensemble is an inspiring model of multicultural artistic exchange, a collective of musicians and composers from around the world creating work informed by the historical connections forged between East and West along the ancient trade route.

Silk Road Ensemble members Christina Pato, and Kinan Azmeh will perform a selection and join us in a conversation moderated by Jarl Mohn of National Public Radio.

Our closing plenary begins at 11:45 AM and doors open at 11:15 AM.  Seating is General Admission.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Stephan Chambers, Director, Marshall Institute, London School of Economics
  • Jarl Mohn, CEO, National Public Radio
