INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – It’s not exactly a pairing you’d expect at a gathering of mayors from around the nation, but it’s happening.
The Dalai Lama and Lady Gaga will address the U.S. Conference of Mayors 84th Annual Meeting in Indianapolis on Sunday.
The Dalai Lama will deliver keynote remarks focusing on the global significance of building compassionate cities. After his presentation, Lady Gaga will join him for a question-and-answer session moderated by journalist Ann Curry.
The event isn’t open to the general public—and the Dalai Lama and Lady Gaga aren’t the only notable guests set to appear at the event. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will speak to the group Sunday as well.
Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and USCM President Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake of Baltimore will host the conference, which runs from June 24 through June 27. The event will bring 300 mayors from across the country to Indianapolis.
