leaps of faith: interfaith art collaboration

If you're in Los Angeles this weekend, check out this cool interfaith event presented by Great Leap: Leaps of Faith, a collaboration of artists to explore their journeys of faith, reach for acceptance, and search for a common language to express unity with diversity. It's happening this Saturday, January 10, at 3:00pm and 8:00pm at JANM's National Center for the Preservation of Democracy in Little Tokyo.

Participating artists are: George Abe, Deema Dabis, Cesar Domingues Guizar, Saria Idana, Danielle Licht, Ameena Mirza, Jason Park, Marie-Francoise Theodore and Carla Vega. Together they'll question contradictions, find humor in differences, and search for a common language to express unity with diversity through personal stories, music, poetry and movement.

Considering the escalating violence in Gaza, and the just the general state of the world, where religious difference can become divisive and destruction, this event is a welcome artistic offering. For more information about Leaps of Faith, visit the Facebook event page here.
