We want to live meaningful, hopeful lives.
But hope is hard.
Life often crashes into our hopes.
What do you do with the pieces?
Can we find hope again?
Somehow we see hope spring up through creativity.
As we move towards Easter we are exploring:
How do we cultivate hope in our lives?
How does creativity meet hope?
How does the creative process help us to live hopeful lives and inspire others to hope?
Will you join us?
