Curating the Social Power of Music

Smithsonian Music will host a conversation with curators from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the National Museum of American History about their work curating the "Social Power of Music." Music brings people and cultures together, compelling us to connect and to bridge social barriers. As part of the Smithsonian Year of Music, the Smithsonian is exploring this capacity of music to challenge and change social boundaries. At this event, a panel of Smithsonian curators will discuss how they've explored this idea through their work with a Smithsonian Folkways Recordings album, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival programming, professional research, and museum programming. Co-sponsor: Smithsonian Music. Venue: American History Museum. Event Location: Third Floor West, Hall of Music. Cost: Free event. Accessibility: Wheelchair accessible. Monday, July 29, 2019, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM.
