The music artist and co-founder of The Roots, Questlove, comes to campus to discuss his recent manifesto on creating, culture and learning — Creative Quest, a New York Times bestseller and nominated for a Grammy Award — and what it means to the future.
Questlove’s visit coincides with a growing presence of maker activity on campus and integration of humanities and the arts in the learning of engineering, design and science. Faculty from across Harvard University and leaders of making and learning off campus will discuss the growing role of creativity and culture in the learning of tomorrow. Questlove’s talk will be followed by a book signing.
Creativity, Culture & Learning will be moderated by David Edwards (SEAS)and is co-sponsored by the future SEAS maker center in Allston, DENIM (Design, Narration & Imaginative Making), and by The Cultural Agents Initiative via its Keyword seminar series (sponsored by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs.)
Questlove is a 5-time GRAMMY Award Winning percussionist, producer, DJ, author, entrepreneur and designer. He is best known as the drummer and cofounder (with Black Thought) for the Grammy Award-winning band The Roots, appearing every night on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
