Event Description


Humanity is a strange organism. Fundamentally we are all the same. Yet we are at the same time also different. 


 


What is it that separates the experience of one from another? What is it that allows action to one person but denies action to another? What lies between the performance of an elite athlete and the performance of a passionate amateur? Why does one person love classical music while another knows that Metal is the crowning achievement of mankind's quest for musical perfection?


 


What is it that divides us? Are the differences real or imaginary? Do we just feel we are different when in reality we are not?


 


Given the diversity that this phenomenon creates, is it something that should be celebrated?


 


Join us as we explore, recognize and reflect on the “The Divide”, questioning the status quo and what is possible, and as a community build on where we are at as a source of strength and inspiration for action into the future.
