The Innovate Heritage Conference in Berlin, held at ZK/U Berlin was a wonderful conference headed by committed and visionary students from the World Heritage Studies Program from the Brandenburgische Technische Universität (BTU).
It was so great to connect with them and be invited to participate in this collected group of scholars and artists. There were a lot of cultures represented within the talks and the arts discussed and presented were as varied, ranging from photography, material art displays, poetry, film and live performance. For this conference I shared a presentation "Contemporary Realities of Hawaiian Performing Arts and the Role of Cultural Identity" under the Theme of "Storytelling".
