After an inspiring and well-attended first season, we are happy to announce the return of the Meet the Artist Lecture Series during the 2018-19 academic year!
The lecture series gives artists, academics, and cultural entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their work to an audience composed of members of the Webster community as well as external guests. Speakers will be interviewed for the Webster University Geneva Podcast.
The series aims to enrich Webster’s intellectual culture, to foster creative and innovative ways of thinking amongst the members of the Webster community, and to create a stronger link between Webster and the rich artistic ecosystem in the Geneva area. Lectures are free and take place on campus on a regular basis on Thursdays 1-2 pm, unless otherwise noted below. There is no need to register.
