This is an audio only event hosted by the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia.
The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia is a private, non-profit, non-partisan educational organization dedicated to creating a more informed citizenry on matters of national and international significance.
Established in 1949 as a forum for discussing differing points of view, the Council does not endorse candidates for public office or lobby for policies. Membership is open to all who share its principles. The Council currently serves over 120 corporate members and their CEOs, and more than 4,000 other executives and individual members.
Trained in Social Work at Columbia University, William Brown apprenticed with designer/cabinet maker Normand Methot. Through his design work, William grew interested in hands-on learning, particularly as it related to talented students who may not necessarily thrive in conventional classrooms. William currently directs the Eli Whitney Museum, where he invents and directs workshops that encourage experimental learning through the use of wood, clay, cloth, computers and electronics – in a compelling combination of art, science and history.
