The Harvard Ed Portal is proud to host Rhythms of Life: A Conversation on the Arts and Healing with Silkroad. Join Silk Road Ensemble members Cristina Pato, Shane Shanahan, and Wu Tong and guests Lisa Wong, Co-Director, Arts and Humanities Initiative at Harvard Medical School, Camille Zamora, co-founder of Sing for Hope, and members of Harvard-Radcliffe MIHNUET for a conversation on the healing art of music. Panelists will explore healing in different stages of life, from early childhood through senior living, using dialogue, inquiry, and musical demonstrations.

Inspired by the exchange of ideas and traditions along the historical Silk Road, cellist Yo-Yo Ma established Silkroad in 1998 to explore how the arts can advance global understanding. Silkroad has been affiliated with Harvard since 2005, with offices on the University’s Allston campus since 2010.

The event is free and open to the public.
