Award-winning photojournalist and Pulitzer Center grantee Daniella Zalcman joins a conversation on what it means to be "other" at National Geographic in Washington, D.C., on the evening of Wednesday, April 11, 2018.
Creative Tensions is a dynamic event meant to engage participants by having them move around the room according to their personal position on different issues. Fostering openness and creativity through dialogue, the event is moderated by IDEO Design Director Alex Gallafent. In addition to Zalcman, the event features Slate magazine’s Jamelle Bouie, and Nancy podcast co-host Kathy Tu.
Zalcman's ongoing series "Signs of Your Identity: Forced Assimilation Education for Indigenous Youth" examines the legacy of the residential school system while also looking towards the future. This project looks at what informs a person's identity, and the ways in which identity is impacted by outside forces.
