In her talk “The Art of Listening”, English musician, writer and International House alumna, Ruth Waterman shows, through both music and poetry, that there’s almost always more than meets the ear. Hearing what’s behind, beyond, over and above what’s apparent allows a richer connection to our world, ourselves and each other.
To be followed by a Q&A.
