In this societal change keynote, Sarah Lewis talks about how the arts in all their forms were able to be a catalyst for radical change in society and be part of the solution for important historical changes.

In this talk, the curator, historian and author uses examples of how photography and music were able to create radical societal change and shift things in humanity as a whole. Lewis hones it on the idea that art can slip in the back door of people's minds without the complicated notations of rational thought and can help people see the world differently.

"The arts are far more than just a respite from life. I see them as a galvanic force that undergirds some of our most impactful changes and movements in this country and in this world," says
