- Tsai Performance Center 685 Commonwealth Ave
The mandate for great and difficult achievement is manifest in the message coming from the science of sustainability and climate change. Yet information alone will not take us where we need to go; science needs the arts to compel a response. It is the synergy of these two great human enterprises that creates both intellectual and emotional clarity. Crossroads takes an audience from intellectual understanding, to visceral experience, to personal resolve.
The event will include a performance by The Fry Street Quartet and then a community conversation afterwards.
This event will be Closed Captioned and include ASL interpretation.
The conversation part of the program will be moderated by Dean of Students Kenn Elmore and include:
Robert Davies - The Crossroads Project
The Fry Street Quartet - The Crossroads Project
Brian Swett - Chief of Environment & Energy for the City of Boston
Lynne Allen - Director, School of Visual Arts - BU
Cutler Cleveland - Professor of Earth and Environment - BU - Center for Energy and Environmental Studies & Senior Fellow at the National Council for Science and the Environment
