Description

In this eighth annual presentation of “Artists Speak”, LMU students gifted in creative writing, dance, theatre arts, music, film, visual arts, and other endeavors shared their responses to the topic of convivencia as issues which impact themselves, their communities, and the world. This event showcases performances and exhibits of original works reflecting the gifts, creativity and passion of the artists at LMU.

Theme of the day:

students.talk. convivencia .

If we truly share life with others, does that mean that “we” have to become like “them”? Or are there things which we simply cannot give up if we are to remain ourselves? At LMU, how do we balance our Catholic, Jesuit, and Marymount identities with openness to people of other faiths or no faith at all? In Los Angeles, how do we respect different kinds of diversity – religious, ethnic, sexual, economic – without deteriorating into separation from each other? In this new century, is religion destined to divide us? Or can it unite this broken world?
