America’s Public Forum: Can Art, Philosophy, and Beauty Heal Our Divides?
April 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
** This event is open to the media upon approval. Media contact: Ciaran O’Connor, [email protected]
From a series of events bridging the worlds of ideas and depolarization, hosted by Braver Angels and friends, “America’s Public Forum.”
Can art, philosophy, and beauty heal our divides?
We hear a lot about the culture wars. But we often forget that culture can be a tool of healing and reconciliation, too. This has been the case across time and place—artists create buildings, books, poems, and paintings that encapsulate and adorn a society’s values and ambitions, inspiring individuals to reflect on their ideals, and to remember who they are when at their best. Do we still have those habits in ourselves, and if not, can we revive those habits today? If so, how?
Join April Lawson of Braver Angels, Philippa Hughes of Curiosity Connects, and Alexandra Hudson of Civic Renaissance for a conversation exploring these questions in our current culture.
