On Monday, April 8, Yo-Yo Ma delivered the 26th Annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy.
Joining a long tradition of individuals who are passionate about and influential in the intersection between public policy and the arts, such as actors Alec Baldwin and Robert Redford, playwright Wendy Wasserstein, and poet Maya Angelou, Ma gave a persuasive argument for arts as the principle core to education, healing and better collaboration in society in his lecture titled, “Art for Life’s Sake: A Roadmap from One Citizen Musician.”
