Speaker & Artist Bios

The Arts Summit brings together Delaware’s arts community to connect, learn, and get inspired. The speakers and sessions will illuminate ways to create value and increase the impact of the arts to purposefully enhance well-being, understanding, learning, and creativity for all.

Keynote Speaker

Liz Lerman

Hiking the Horizontal Trans-Disciplinary Practices for Tackling Questions Big and Small

What roles can art have in fields as diverse as faith, aging, particle physics, war-time medicine, and human rights law? What happens to our various fields of study and action when we collaborate across disciplines and domains? How does sharing these ideas sustain inquiry, innovation, and the emergence of new knowledge? In this talk, MacArthur Fellow, choreographer, performer, writer, and educator Liz Lerman will tackle these questions, as she has over decades of dance-making about urgent real-life issues.
