Artists are innovators, changemakers, and more often than not, proponents of social justice, reform and action.
The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and the Do Good Institute are proud to present several artists whose beliefs in the power of the human spirit and social justice inform everything they make. These powerful voices will speak about their work through a series of panel discussions, public interviews, and audience roundtables in Do Good Dialogues.
Designed to complement University of Maryland's Do Good Campus activities that create a hub of activity for philanthropy, nonprofit management, public policy, social change and leadeship, these events will educate, inspire and reinforce the importance of taking action to make a positive change in our communities and the world.
If sometimes our great artists have been the most critical of our society, it is because their sensitivity and their concern for justice, which must motivate any true artist, makes him aware that our Nation falls short of its highest potenial. - John F. Kennedy, 1963
