Musings on Fusion
Cultural meetings in music can yield great results at their best, and cringeworthy moments at their worst. How do you make it work? What are the pitfalls? How do you level the musical playing field between performers from different traditions?
In this panel, we meet four musicians who have tried to crack these codes.
Seen and heard echoes of Vietnam: Who defines how we are represented?
Step into a world where echoes of Vietnam resound, where stories are shaped and redefined, and where the power of representation takes center stage. The struggle for agency over one's body and narrative unfolds on multiple fronts, urging individuals to carve their identities within the intricate tapestry of cultures.

The Power of Music and Advocacy
We are excited to present an exclusive artist talk with the legendary Greek artist, George Dalaras. He is much more than a musician. As a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), he has been an unwavering advocate for refugee and migrant rights.
During this artist talk, attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage with Dalaras in an intimate Q&A session, where he will share personal stories and anecdotes from his life and career.
