African issues and the challenge of artistic response: A panel discussion
To what extent can art be a force for change? Should it be? Are some artworks more or less useful than others in such a context?
Binyavanga Wainaina, playwright of The Africa Trilogy’s Shine Your Eye and Director of the Chinua Achebe Centre for African Literature at Bard College, esteemed author and scholar Ngugi wa Thiong’o and James Orbinski, writer, doctor, and former head of the Nobel-prize winning Médecins Sans Frontières, discuss African issues and the place of artistic response in an arena more often dominated by international development discourse.
