Join us for our first annual symposium, ENGAGE: Beyond Feathers & Glitter. The day-long event is an interactive symposium where visitors will have the opportunity to explore Carnival through engaging conversations and hands-on learning interwoven with lively performances. It is our hope that attendees will gain a better understanding of the global influence of Carnival and its greater cultural implications. The symposium is being organized in coordination with the exhibition, En Mas': Carnival and Performance Art of the Caribbean, on view at MoAD through March 4, 2018.
