On July 16th, the Ikeda Center hosted its third virtual dialogue event of the year, called:
The Poetic Spirit:
Our Power To Reconnect A Divided World
Attended by 250 participants from 19 countries via Zoom, the event centered around a panel discussion between Dr. Sarah Wider (Professor of English, Colgate University) and Ikeda Center Youth Committee members Isaiah Moon and Valentina Frasisti on the power of the poetic spirit.
After the panel discussion, participants had the opportunity to create their own poems and engage in dialogue in their small breakout groups!
