A diverse group of American and International artists, educators, scientists, and activists, as well as a number of students and faculty from the Holy Innocent’s Episcopal School community, have presented stories and ideas that captivated their audiences and, more importantly, got people thinking. We bring these events to the public to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters.
