As part of a three-day workshop on the past, present and future of the state of California, the Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study hosted Antonio Villaraigosa, the former mayor of Los Angeles. Wednesday’s event, moderated by Professor Manuel Pastor, was integrated into the workshop’s programming on the theme, “California: Past Imagined, Present Innovation and Future Sustainability.”
The "Daily Trojan" was on hand to report on the evening's proceedings. Check it out here.
Being encompasses the internal and external; the solitary and communal; everydayness and timelessness; and the physical, spiritual, and cerebral, all at once. The fall 2015 Polymathic Pizza series explores being in all these dimensions, with the ultimate aim to be more fulfilled, to be more engaged, and to be more ourselves.
