MoAD’s First Annual Symposium | Engage: Beyond Feathers & Glitter


Join us for our first annual symposium, ENGAGE: Beyond Feathers & Glitter. The day-long event is an interactive symposium where visitors will have the opportunity to explore Carnival through engaging conversations and hands-on learning interwoven with lively performances. It is our hope that attendees will gain a better understanding of the global influence of Carnival and its greater cultural implications.
