LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director, Michael Govan talks with Ford Foundation President, Darren Walker about civic engagement and the power of art and creative expression to transform communities. In 2016, TIME Magazine named Walker one of “The 100 Most Influential People” for moving one of the nation’s largest foundations toward the goal of conquering inequality. The Ford Foundation’s efforts to dispel inequity range from reducing mass incarceration to promoting social justice storytelling through art, film, and investigative journalism. The discussion touched on a range of the Foundation’s initiatives as well as the ways art and artists are becoming catalysts in transforming cities and communities.
