This past weekend I joined MAPP International and the The Africa Contemporary Arts Consortium for Dialogues Across Culture: A Model for Building Enduring Partnerships.  I moderated a discussion on Connecting Artists & Communities between Laura Faure of the Bates Dance Festival in Lewiston, Maine and Maria Helena Pinto of DANS’ARTES—a new center to host national, pan-African, and international meetings, festivals, performances and exhibitions just outside Maputo, the capital of Mozambique.
