In everything from education, medicine, science and law to political leadership and business, art is a force that drives innovation. Professor Sommer will speak about the role that arts and humanities play in developing societies, including her work in “Pre-Texts,” an arts-literacy program for youth at the Ed Portal in Allston-Brighton, among many other sites. Light refreshments will be served. Free parking is available at 219 Western Avenue, adjacent to the Harvard Allston Education Portal.
