RiverArts Salon with Paul Ware - Cultural differences between the global East & West

RiverArts Salons

A RiverArts Salon is a (virtual) place for lively conversation that is physically distant but socially connected. Salons provide a forum and structure for a rich exchange of thoughts and ideas that goes a little bit deeper than small talk, and gives everyone something new and interesting to consider. They grow closer community connections and increased understanding. And—they're a place just to have some socially distanced fun of an evening. 

Tuesdays from 5 - 5:45, on Zoom

Tuesday, February 2: Salon with Paul Ware - Cultural Differences between the global East & West

Paul shared a wealth of information about cultural differences between the global East and West, focusing on the specific cases of New Zealand and Taiwan. What are the different ideas and values informing their nation-building projects? How are these embodied and expressed by the state, the community, the family and the individual? And, most importantly, what can each learn from the other about how to develop a society in which people can thrive?
