The Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage (CFCH) is presenting a symposium on May 12 that will explore efforts to sustain local artistic practices and cultural identities as the world becomes increasingly globalized. CFCH is partnering with the Royal Textile Academy of Bhutan and the Alliance for California Traditional Arts to assemble an exemplary array of speakers—community leaders, artisans, academics, and tradition bearers—to share their stories and engage key issues of cultural sustainability and its place in modern society. Representatives from the world of sustainable development, language revitalization, and cultural revitalization will discuss topics such as cultural heritage and well-being, cultural and economic sustainability, and cultural sustainability and revitalization. Speakers will include Maria Rosario Jackson, Angelique Kidjo, and the Queen Mother of Bhutan.

Where: Rasmuson Theater, National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, D.C.
