gloATL and IRC join Center for Ethics to Kick-Off a Week of Events in Remembrance of 9/11
Join the Emory University President James Wagner, The Center for Ethics, the Wonderful Wednesday moderators, and the Inter-Religious Council this Wednesday at 12pm in Asbury circle for the first event in a week long series of events to remember September 11th. For the first time on Emory’s campus gloATL, “a collaborative platform of exceptional contemporary physical performance,” will be staging an interactive dance that is part choreography and part art-installation. The performance is led by gloATL founder Lauri Stallings. Last year Ms. Stallings received the first of Emory’s Creativity and the Arts Creative Impact Awards. The event was conceptualized by Carlton Mackey, Chair of the Ethics and the Arts Initiative at Emory’s Center for Ethics and also a winner of the Center for Creativity and the Arts Award.
Following the dance performance, the IRC will lead a ritual of healing and reflection. The Inter-Religious Council is composed of student representatives of religious groups on campus with the purpose of generating inter-religious dialogue. This event will provide an atmosphere that confronts tragedy with creativity and spiritual reflection.
