Sachs Talks Art and Democracy: A Conversation with Albie Sachs, renowned human rights leader and former South African Constitutional Court Justice

Date: Monday, November 18, 2013
Time: 05:30PM - 07:00PM
Description: The presentation will begin with a multimedia tour of the South African Constitutional Court, a world- renowned building with special warmth and humanity that reflects Sachs’ own deep interest in art and architecture. Developed on the site of the infamous Johannesburg prison that held Gandhi and Mandela, the building and art collection boldly illustrate the post- apartheid spirit of an emerging nation in all its diversity. Following the presentation, Justice Sachs will discuss the South African experience of healing divided societies, and the special role of arts and culture in an emerging democracy.
