Radical Beauty: Living in the Tension of Healing and Social Change


  • Montreat Institute for Christian Leadership 401 Assembly Drive Montreat, NC, 28711 United States (map)

Do you believe beauty could be a resource for creating change in communities? A source of healing for hurting souls? A way of engaging in a more productive conversation? We do.

Radical Beauty is for people who believe there’s a better way to engage in dialogue across all sorts of differences, who believe that art can build community and cross divides.

Radical Beauty will use a cyclical model of engagement to explore how we can use art to create and cultivate beauty. Each cycle will begin with an artistic experience – a concert, a film viewing, a poetry reading – followed by a facilitated conversation about how that experience, and others like it, can build community. Our own Micky ScottBey Jones will serve as lead facilitator for the event!
