History is studied with the intent of learning from the past. Memorials, museums, and monuments are erected to remind us of events that witnessed the abuse of humanity. The “Never Again?” series poses the question if humanity has learned from history and if progress has been made in the practical implementation of NEVER AGAIN. Series speakers will discuss how educational tools and communication are designed to enhance educational learning and awareness.
Speakers for the Never Again? Series are former educators in the field, victims, professors and authors that have a direct relation to and or experience with the direct topics. The case studies are from around the world and different phases of history but primarily from the last 100 years. We have focused more on this period because as humanity has developed, our understanding of why these tragedies continue is critical to understanding why.

Hence, the term, arts-campus highlighting, as at a university the varied “majors”, falling under the title of a campus. The event is designed for investment advisors, family offices, museum directors, institutional investors, patrons, foundations, asset allocators that are engaged on both the buy and sell side of the fine arts.
