Wild Goose Festival
July 7, 2016 - July 10, 2016
Join NCIPL Leadership Council members & NC Council of Churches staff at the Wild Goose Festival, July 7-10, to look at the stories that shape us and shape our world. Because maybe, together, we can reshape them.
We all live by stories, whether we realize it or not…our personal stories of things we’ve done, or that were done to us, corners we turned, chances we took, mistakes we made.
We also live by the stories that permeate our culture, framing stories like big glass windows – we see the world through them, but sometimes barely even know they are there.
At Wild Goose, we’ve always been about making space for courageous, imaginative, and participative social justice work, unleashed creative expression, disruptive spiritual practice, as well as astonishing and inspiring music and art.
This summer we’ll be doing all of that in the context of STORY. Asking, what are the stories we’re living by? Are they stories of hope or scarcity? Stories of justice or violence? Stories of fear or love?
We’ll bring all our histories and narratives, together, to tell stories and retell stories, hear stories and heal stories, question stories, and unravel the threads of the stories that shape us, even rule us…and perhaps create new ones.
We hope you’ll join us. You’ll definitely get some great stories out of it.
