Yes to Life: In Spite of Everything—Artistic Interpretations of Forgiveness In-Person

What is forgiveness?

Centuries of human existence have taught us there are those who seek to live beyond the harm done to them, who create a new existence not just for themselves but as an example to others and for the betterment of the community. This distinctive human phenomenon known as forgiveness is a declaration of “Yes” to life, the determination that it is not what you are living from but what you are living for.

While this concept has its foundations in religion, philosophy, psychology, and experience, the creative arts allow people to explore the question of forgiveness through self expression.

Over three sessions, Dr. Smith will present to attendees, helping them explore various teachings and examine lived experiences. In the final session, attendees will have the opportunity to share the artwork they've created on their own.

This event is part of the ARTx: Art + Ideas Experience Arizona
