Culture in Conversations

 

Culture in Conversations offers you a selection of amazing, moving, and inspiring videos featuring individuals who shape our cultural world. If you have half an hour or more to immerse yourself in one or more of these videos, you may encounter someone of interest and learn about their creativity and work. These conversations, curated and discovered by the Culture Committee, are available for three months and are then replaced quarterly with a new selection. So, please revisit this site and take a look. The conversations are conducted in different languages; some include subtitles in a different language, while for others, subtitles in various languages can be activated by clicking on the settings wheel in the video. If none of these options work, you will always find at least one link in one of the five official IPA languages: English, Spanish, German, French, and Portuguese.

Best wishes from the IPA Culture Committee,
Cordelia Schmidt-Hellerau (Chair)
