Aspen Ideas To Go Podcast: Acting Out

June 11, 2015  • Tricia Johnson, Guest Blogger

The “Aspen Ideas To Go” podcast is a weekly show featuring fascinating speakers who have presented at the Aspen Ideas Festival and other public programs offered by the Aspen Institute—including Aspen Words, the Alma and Joseph Gildenhorn Book Series, and various events around the country. For a curated listening experience subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or listen to each episode on the Aspen Ideas website.

From co-founding Artists for a Free South Africa, to working in failing schools to turn them around, actor and 2014 Harman-Eisner Artist in Residence Alfre Woodard has played a role in making change as an activist artist. Woodard joins the Institute’s Damian Woetzel in a conversation about her career and work as an artist on the front lines.
