KZUM Special Presentation: E.N. THOMPSON Interview – Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia

This special presentation features an interview with Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia. Wadhia will be speaking as part of the E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues. The E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues is a cooperative project of the Cooper Foundation, Lied Center for Performing Arts, and University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It was established in 1988 with the purpose of bringing a diversity of viewpoints on international and public policy issues to the university and people of Nebraska to promote understanding and encourage debate.

ART

During the Coronavirus, creatives rely on camaraderie

Lincoln is home to a multitude of art galleries which cater to the artists, students and residents in the community. As COVID-19 first began its spread, the galleries were forced to acclimate to the new realities that the pandemic presented. For many, the first months of uncertainty resulted in temporarily closed doors.
