In April, we launched our Indagare Global Classroom to allow people to explore the world while staying at home. With Global Conversations, my series of hour-long Zoom calls, I am inviting friends and heroes of mine to share how different places have shaped their lives and perspectives. Many of these people have been part of our Insider Journeys, and all of them have amazing stories to tell and insights to offer. In the next few months, I hope you’ll join me as I introduce some of the most innovative and inspiring people who I have met on the road.
Sign up here for Global Conversations. Friends of Indagare Members and Subscribers are also welcome. Learn more about the talks below and read AFAR Magazine’s review of our program here! Plus: 16 charitable organizations our GC speakers know and love.

Coming Soon: More Global Conversations
We’re taking a brief pause in our regular Global Conversations programming later this month, to prepare future fall sessions for you. Until then, here are a few highlights to look forward to—and don’t forget, you can catch up on the sessions that you missed by subscribing to our new Global Conversations Podcast and downloading episodes, available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher! We’ll see you live via Zoom again, soon.
GLOBAL CONVERSATION WITH DESIGNER BRITT MORAN AND WSJ. MAGAZINE CONTRIBUTING EDITOR SARAH MEDFORD
Join us for a conversation with designer Britt Moran and The Wall Street Journal’s WSJ. Magazine contributing editor Sarah Medford—if they don’t know a design movement or trend, it doesn’t exist. The North Carolina-born, Milan-based Britt Moran is one of the two founders of Dimorestudio (the Architecture and Interior Design Studio for clients such as Dior, Fendi, The Arts Club, Ian Schrager and Thierry Costes), Dimoregallery (the historical and contemporary Design Gallery) and Dimoremilano (the label housing the furniture, fabric, decorative and home collections), which he heads with his business partner, Emiliano Salci. Sarah Medford has enjoyed a long career in media since the 1980s at such publications as Architectural Digest and Town & Country. Now a contributing editor at WSJ., she’s a design expert and also co-hosts some of the Insider Journeys that Indagare runs in partnership with WSJ.

GLOBAL CONVERSATION WITH KIGALI-BASED PAINTER EMMANUEL NKURANGA
Sometimes places with the roughest histories make the most impact on visitors: In the case of Rwanda, the chance to see the gorillas is the big draw. But the chance to meet so many motivated people who lived through or were shaped by the 1994 genocide and who are now part of the success story of rebuilding this beautiful country is a big part of the experience, too. Artist Emmanuel Nkuranga represents this transformation. He was born in Uganda to Rwandan parents who had fled during the country’s pre-civil war unrest. After the family returned to Rwanda, Emmanuel and his brother developed their painting skills at Ivuka Arts Kigali, a contemporary arts center. And in 2012 they started their own center, Inema Arts Center, dedicated to promoting art as a healing, educational and economic tool for current and future generations of Rwandans. In this conversation, Emmanuel will talk about opening minds, improving lives and creating jobs through art and creativity.
