Unbound Stories: Storytelling, Empathy, and Peacebuilding
Friday, February 24 | 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
When we took time to reflect upon the stories, myths, and attachments that have shaped our identities, we began to recognize the limits to our views of the world. We began to realize that our perspective alone was incomplete. It is only through connecting with others and sharing stories that we can develop empathy and challenge those limitations. This event is designed out of a passion for the power of artistic expression and a desire to create space for meaningful dialogue.
