Conversation Project: What Is Cultural Appropriation?

April 16, 2019 | 7:00 p.m. | Walters Cultural Arts Center

527 East Main Street, Hillsboro OR 97123

Issues of cultural appropriation and identity are complicated. Power dynamics influence who benefits from certain cultural experience, and—given the global nature of our world—parts of our individual and cultural identities are shaped by cultures other than our own. How do we make sense of this and what effect does it have on us as individuals and as Oregonians? Facilitator Surabhi Majahan will lead us in a conversation to explore cultural appropriation beyond who’s “allowed” to wear certain clothing or cook particular foods.
