Artists Reflect on Social Justice:
Creative Responses to Suffering

July 1 to 22, 7pm to 9pm
Four Wednesday evenings
How do we respond to injustice with love? How do we meet the world’s troubles with creativity? How do we stay inspired? How do we maintain a sense of kindness to ourselves? These questions will be explored by four Bay Area artists, respected for their artistry and their commitment to social justice.
Each of these four Wednesday evenings will begin with a short guided meditation, followed by a presentation by the artist, and an interactive session.
