Sunday, January 3 – 11 a.m. – Imagination – Amy Day
“Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality,” Lewis Carroll once said. So, come with us on a journey of imagination. Bypassing, for a moment, the limited confines of the rational mind, we can allow ourselves to consider and even dream about what is possible, not only as mere, isolated individuals, but as a collective, an assemblage of pulsating Imaginal Cells – a whole – in the days and year to come.

In this time of Covid-19, climate change, poverty, disparity and a much-divided world, we find ourselves in a fear-based tender-spirit moment. There is a fragility to hope right now. Yet how do we experience the world, and its future, without holding onto hope? Lezley will explore what it means to hold onto hope, the link between hope and creativity, what our young people hold onto, and what we can do for our future.
