On Monday, June 7th, 2010, the Culture Project presents its Blueprint for Accountability with an unprecedented panel of the world's foremost experts and artists, building a case against the institutions and individuals threatening our system of democracy, while engaging the public in constructing a blueprint for a more just and democratic future.

Center for Constitutional Rights Executive Director Vincent Warren will be part of a stimulating panel discussion at the Skirball Center for Performing Arts at NYU in NYC. A brief look at the Nuremberg Trials and Geneva Conventions will inform a probing discussion of the historical framework for America's policies limiting abuses in war, and our nation's radical departure from international human rights laws and civil liberties protections post-911.
Tickets have sold out for this event; however, you still have the opportunity to watch from home live at the following link: http://fora.tv/live/culture_project/blueprint_for_accountability.

 
CULTURE PROJECT presents
"BLUEPRINT FOR ACCOUNTABILITY"
MONDAY, JUNE 7, 2010 at 7:30PM
Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, NYU
A fusion of theater, film, journalism and debate
directed by 
Fisher Stevens (Academy Award Winner, The Cove)
with 
  • Vince Warren (Executive Director, Center for Constitutional Rights)
  • Valerie Plame Wilson (Former CIA Officer)
  • Lt. General Ricardo Sanchez (Former Iraq commander)
  • Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (Author and Environmental Activist)
  • Ron Suskind (Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist)
  • Jeremy Scahill (Best-Selling Author and Investigative Journalist)
  • Rose Styron (Poet and Human Rights Activist)
  • Dr. Allen Keller (Director, Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture)
Punctuating the experts' discussion, Director Fisher Stevens will screen vital archival footage and bring to life compelling dramatic scenes performed by acclaimed actors:
 James Spader, Liev Schreiber, Julianna Margulies, Mariska Hargitay and Matt Dillon.

Igniting an unprecedented sense of hope and possibility, the election of Barack Obama served to position American resolve and commitment as never before. Spurred by the one-year anniversary of the President's pronouncement to close Guantanamo, and the fates of nearly 200 detainees still hanging in the balance, Culture Project presents its groundbreaking "Blueprint for Accountability" series at NYU Skirball Center to engage the public in constructing a "blueprint" for a more just and democratic future.
Assembling some of the most important and influential voices of our time to help us understand the unprecedented events, policies and circumventions of the past administration, Culture Project's "Blueprint for Accountability" fuses theater, film, debate, and discussion to call attention to these crimes, urging policy makers, elected officials, and world citizens to craft a decisive moral response, capable of restoring both America's dignity and standing throughout the international community.

Don't miss your chance to view this event live,

Sincerely,

Annette Warren Dickerson
