Jay talks with Max Frieder, Ed.D., Suza Uddin, Syed Rashad Imam Tanmoy, and Esero Nalyong, all of whom are associated with Artolution—a global non-profit organization that seeks to strengthen communities experiencing crisis through collaborative art-making. Artolution is based out of New York and has facilitated more than 400 projects in 30 countries globally since 2009. Max is one of the Co-founders of Artolution and now serves as the Chief Creative Officer, Suza serves as the Bangladesh Country Manager for the Rohingya Crisis, Syed is a Lead Teaching Artist Trainer in Bangladesh, and Esero is the Ugandan Field Manager and Lead Teaching Artist. During the program, we'll be learning why and how Artolution came about and how it's grown, developed, and operates today. We'll find out about some of their groundbreaking and life-changing programs and, in the process, come to better understand and appreciate the importance, value, and power of collaborative art making as a means of providing a sustainable and long-lasting social impact on the next generation of citizens.
