They will share their reflections, learnings, and experiences based on using the creative arts to spark important conversations and social action.

The program will begin with the presentation of the film, Mercy's Blessing, which takes place in a rural village in the heart of Africa a teenage boy has a dream: 
to raise his younger sister and himself out of poverty. But when a twist of fate shatters his hopes, everything seems lost and he is faced with the ultimate choice.
