Visions

Improve and Overcome the World

“LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER” ARTS CONVERSATIONS. Isn’t it time to be working together for equity and against white supremacy in our churches, schools, and everywhere we’re connected, using the many creative gifts we have all been blessed with to transform lives and make some real changes? This is one of seven sets of questions for all ages that might be used in Equity Voices arts conversations, for participants to express themselves artistically using words, images, photos, a video, a song or any creative means of responding, and also get to know a bit about other people participating in the conversations. Other topics include Self & Family, Other People, Community & Country, Race & Justice, Values, Equity Actions. Now, during Lent, each topic includes one Scripture-based question as the first in the list.

Please create your answers/responses to these questions using words, images, photos, a video, a song or any creative, artistic means of responding. Then share your response online (on the equity-voices.com website) and/or with your Equity Voices group, friends, family, or other people.
