Join us at the 11th Annual Visionary Leadership Award Dinner honoring Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith!
The Visionary Leadership Award honors a leader whose trailblazing work impacts the world. The award presentation and its associated events occur outside the two-week Festival, and proceeds support The Jean Handley Fund for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas.
We are thrilled to honor Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith for her extraordinary leadership to advance health and healthcare equity for structurally marginalized populations in the United States and the world. Join us for this exclusive opportunity to hear Dr. Nunez-Smith's story and gain her insight into the ongoing dual pandemics of COVID-19 and racism.
Presented virtually, this event will also feature a special performance by pianist Nachito Herrera. With the purchase of a regular or benefactor ticket, you will also receive a special three-course dinner from Forks & Fingers to enjoy while viewing at home. Proceeds from this event support The Jean Handley Fund for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Reserve your spot now!
