Issues of cultural appropriation and identity are complicated. Power dynamics influence who benefits from certain cultural experience, and — given the global nature of the world — parts of one’s individual and cultural identity are shaped by cultures other than our own. How do we make sense of this and what effect does it have on us as individuals and as Oregonians?
This is the focus of “What Is Cultural Appropriation?” a free conversation with Surabhi Mahajan on Sunday, June 10, at 4 p.m. at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE Highway 101. This program is hosted by Sitka Center for Art and Ecology and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
