Chew on Life's Big Questions with Rainn Wilson  

 

Join Rainn Wilson for a fun and inspiring day-long youth conference (ages 15-25 only) at the University of Illinois at Chicago to talk about life's big questions!

 

Why are we here?

What is our purpose? 

 

Be a part of a crazy experiment of looking at the world through a spiritual lens to see the possibilities of a united world. Explore vital topics in different workshops throughout the day and empower each other on how to address issues like:

  • healing racism
  • equality between women and men
  • environmental justice
  • art as service

 

A new life is, in this age, stirring within all the peoples of the earth… Baha’u’llah
