What is Art For?: Lewis Hyde, Patricia Millns & Patricia Vigderman

Saturday 9 March, 4pm-5pm

Al Khayma, InterContinental, DFC

Everyone attending a literature festival can see the joy and appeal of books, art and creativity, but in a world where art is often the first to be regarded as inessential when budgets are tightened in various organisations, how do we make a case for art? Dissecting why art and literature matter are poet, essayist, translator and cultural critic Lewis Hyde, writer and Assistant Professor of English at Kenyon College Patricia Vigderman and Emirati based artist and Fellow of Society of Arts in London, Patricia Millns.
