Maristella Svampa, Enrique VialeEnrique Viale, Host Tom KruseThe Global South Perspective on the Polycrisis
~Co-presented by The New School and Omega~
Please join us for a discussion on the global polycrisis from the perspective of thought leaders from the Global South. Moderated by Rockefeller Brothers Fund’s Tom Kruse, Dr. Maristella Svampa and Enrique Viale will discuss what the predominant narrative around the polycrisis—framed by North American and European-based institutions—is missing when it fails to incorporate perspectives from the Global South. In addition, they will discuss the roles that art and literature can play when promoting a broader understanding of the factors that contribute to the polycrisis as well as reasons for hope.
