DakhaBrakha Preconcert Panel Discussion: 
The Path of the Artist in Times of Conflict 

Opening remarks by Olha Ivanova, Cultural Attaché of the Embassy of Ukraine

Join us before DakhaBrakha on November 17 as we discuss the various paths of artists and culture-makers in a divided world, and whether artists can be considered sources of cultural diplomacy. Panelists will share their insight on the challenges artists and performers face in Ukraine and other countries in conflict and the choices available to them regarding engagement or disengagement with conflict and political controversies.

Maryna Baydyuk, United Help Ukraine
Jim Thomson, Multiflora Productions
Lesya Pavlyuk, Ukrainian artist and educator
