Saturday, February 27 9:30AM to Noon (CST) online
Join poet and theologian Pádraig Ó Tuama in a workshop exploring the practices of creativity, generosity, forgiveness and justice. A long-time peace and conflict mediator, Pádraig has an interest in how poetic form, language and bravery can support people as they explore these important themes in their artistic and public work.
Anawim Arts is pleased to sponsor this exciting event. We believe that Pádraig Ó Tuama’s words speak deeply to the situation that the world finds itself in right now. Pádraig Ó Tuama has found ways to use imagination and creativity to address peacemaking, border-crossing and the ways that expanding our questions/perspectives creates new possibilities.
To learn more about Pádraig Ó Tuama, you can go to his website or listen to this On Being interview.

One thought on “A Morning with Pádraig Ó Tuama”
A morning with Pádraig Ó Tuama, although it was evening at my side, was the most exciting and enriching online workshop I have ever attended. I carried with me several ideas among them; creative art is allowing something to grow in me, and while I am concerned about being the voice for the voiceless, there is a greater concerning as to who is listening. I then felt inspired to revisit the gallery of my articles and reflections, they may be of importance some day.
Pádraig, thank you for being an inspiration.
