About the Event
We know that many things can get lost in translation, and the same is true in the arts.
When you dub a movie into a foreign language, how do you maintain the message the writers and director had in mind? When a bicultural team creates a single work, how does that work speak to different audiences? How does use of a particular medium reveal similarities and differences in how people from different cultures create meaning for their audiences?
The successful communication of intention is important in all human endeavors; this look at how people convey meaning in cross-cultural creative contexts will be useful to people of all professions.
Our panel experts are:
Catherine Stuer, Professor of Art History and Visual Culture, Denison University
Tom Gattis, Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Columbus College of Art & Design
Hank Abbott, Associate Director, Creative Affairs, Pearl Studio
The event will be followed by 30 minutes of virtual breakout rooms for small-group networking and opportunity sharing. All are welcome to stay for this engaging portion of the event.
