@PhillipsCollection is "an intimate museum combined with an experiment station." Great partnership with Aspen Institute today!

Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan: need more aggressive funding of educational programs like Fulbright, ensures citizens gain stake in each other

Madeleine Albright: Vaclav Havel said "Jazz kept hope of freedom of hope alive in Czechoslovakia." What is jazz of today? Hip hop?

Jim Moran: Cultural diplomacy by govt tainted with having strategic objective. Must come from those who wish to share search for truth.

Joseph Duffey: should reallocate resources, spend less $ on broadcasting & more $ on forums/dialogue & intense personal experiences

Eric Fischl: it's important for people to make pilgrimages to see and experience great art.

A.Nafisi recites a few lines of Persian poetry that says "go against the flow of habits."

A.Nafisi: cultural diplomacy=genuine curiosity about others & offering something that makes others curious about you + connection to others

Azar Nafisi is soooo awesome! "I want to live in the republic of the imagination, which transcends religion, nationality, race, gender...."

J.Leach: social media increases communication. Will this lead to greater cultural understanding?

Jim Leach: Military power infused with cultural knowledge is lacking. Must understand the cultural setting.

E.Diller: "The Mall has been site of great speeches etc. The Hirshhorn's bubble inhales that air of greatness."

Elizabeth Diller: "Art is a resource for thought."

Aspen Institute forum on cultural diplomacy today @phillipscollection. Will be tweeting all day @pinklineproject!
