In this Digital Soundings Seminar, a wonderful panel of artists and storytellers discussed the role that beauty plays in the pursuit of wisdom. Specifically, they explore the ways in which we can orient ourselves so that we become better able to see beauty where we least expect it. The conversation draws deeply from the life and work of artist and missionary Lilias Trotter.
This offering was part of our “Beauty for Ballast” Initiative.
