Last week we welcomed John to Hilton | Asmus to speak on his new book. Why would a gallery spend time hosting a former front man, you ask? Simply put, we think knowledge is power. We believe that it is our responsibility as a nation, as people, and as a community to educate ourselves and one another on important and real issues happening in the world today. As an art gallery we promote and celebrate freedom of expression. We aim to inspire. John Perkins has us inspired.
John Perkins wears many hats. Apart from his former life as an EHM he has worked at an international consulting firm as Chief Economist and was the CEO of a successful alternative energy company. John has written books on economics and politics, and shared his expertise on indigenous cultures. He is the founder and board member of two non-profit organizations, Dream Change and The Pachamama Alliance.
John Perkins has generated a call to action to create greater social, environmental, and economic security for all.
We will strive to do our part, too.
