Art of Compassion

The Art of Compassion is an opportunity for you to participate in a positive, respectful, and affirming three-day conversation guided by industry empathy experts and wellness professionals centered on equality, addictions, and recovery. This series of events serves hospitality workers and students in our community struggling with substance abuse and addiction and offers hope, fellowship, and a path forward.

On Wednesday, the event will begin with world-famous storyteller, Nigerian author Chimamanda Gnozi Adichie, followed by a panel on Thursday consisting of award-winning restauranteur Steve Palmer and food writer and television host John T. Edge.

Friday’s programming includes intimate presentations from wellness professionals focusing on practical strategies for improving well-being and enhancing mental health. The symposium will conclude Friday evening with a ticketed musical story-telling performance by Country star Martina McBride.

This three-day event is the product of a partnership with Imagine One Hospitality, Lenoir-Rhyne University, and Ben's Friends. This symposium aims to address the national mental health crisis on a local level by targeting two vulnerable groups in our community-our hospitality workers and our students.
