What realities do we imagine for ourselves, our families, our communities? How might our individual and collective imaginations create the reality we desire? Where, in fact, does imagination reside, and who or what is cultivating its practice? What is needed to unleash public imagination in ways that benefit our communities’ economic, social, and cultural health?
Eavesdrop on a spontaneous exchange among three nationally known figures from the arts, humanities, and religion as they discuss the festival theme, Exploring Imagination. Join Julie Dash, producer, writer, and director; Brian D. McLaren, author, songwriter, and national religious leader; and Richard Rodriguez, awardwinning essayist and author, for an invigorating discussion moderated by Indiana author Scott Russell Sanders.
