Conversations in Culture offers diverse programs on culture from Europe, including music, visual art, theater, culinary art and literature - with an educational twist. In informal discussions, leading and emerging experts provide insights about their art form, in combination with a demonstration or performance. Programs provide an informal and entertaining forum to catch up on new and "old" cultural gems.
