Institute Chairman Herbie Hancock takes part in UCLA Arts virtual discussion: “What Is Hope?”

Institute Chairman and 14-time Grammy and Oscar-winning pianist, composer and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue Herbie Hancock will take part in a virtual discussion to explore the question “What Is Hope?” on Monday, Nov. 2 as part of the 10 Questions interdisciplinary course and public event series conducted by the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture. 

Hancock, a professor at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, will be joined by award-winning author, screenwriter and producer Tananarive Due, who is also a lecturer in UCLA’s Department of African American Studies, as well as Ramesh Srinivasan, a professor in UCLA’s Department of Information Studies and director of the UC Digital Cultures Lab. The conversation will be led by Victoria Marks, associate dean of academic affairs of the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture and professor in the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance.

The election eve discussion, which is free to watch with registration, is the second event in the 2020 installment of 10 Questions, an annual series that invites the public to join UCLA students in the virtual classroom to engage in vibrant conversation alongside leading faculty and distinguished alumni from across the university. This year’s series, 10 Questions: Reckoning, addresses the most urgent set of questions yet – COVID-19, the climate crisis, social and political turmoil unlike anything we have seen in a generation–and, of course, a presidential election.

Register today to watch the discussion on Monday, Nov. 2, 2020 at 7 pm PST.
