A unique Georgetown University's Department of Performing Arts effort, the Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics, harnesses the power of performance to humanize global politics.

I recently spent some time with Ijeoma Nijaka, inclusive pedagogy specialist at the Lab, for The Washington Post.

The Lab specializes in empathy, which engages friends or strangers in dialogue through art and artistic practice — whether at the level of everyday discourse or between nations in forms of cultural diplomacy. More work is posted on Instagram.
