On this week's radio show, my special guest is Adam Horowitz (aka Norman Beckett, Deputy Secretary and founder) of the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture. The USDAC is the nation's newest people-powered department, founded on the truth that art and culture are our most powerful and under-tapped resources for social change. Adam holds a BA from Yale University and was a Fulbright Scholar in Columbia, where he wrote about performance and politics for Theater Magazine. The USDAC is radically inclusive, useful and sustainable, and vibrantly playful, and is engaging millions is performing and creating a world rooted in empathy, equity, and social imagination.

We will also air and encore segment of my conversation with another social change artist, Elizabeth Lesser, who is co-founder of Omega Institute and author of the best-selling book, Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow.
The conversations begin Sunday at noon on 88.7FM, WICR (Indianapolis area) and worldwide at richardbrendan.com.
