(Un)Comfortable Conversations: Telling Our Stories, Transforming Our World
November 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Change – personal and societal – has the power to bring us together and divide us. Hear from spoken word artists, writers, and community leaders on what it means to wrestle with and accept the consequences of change.
New and profound communal bonds are often formed as we grow into an embrace our true identities. Yet this process of change and self-acceptance can often break older bonds and challenge tradition. Reflect on the words of spoken word artists whose religious, racial, sexual, and gender identities have created new bonds and broken others. In what ways has personal change strengthened their sense of identity and community while disrupting tradition? Are some of these divides worth bridging? Or letting go? What new community values are revealed as we embrace change and how might art uplift stories of positive change?
