‘Growing Strong Together’
Since the postponement of our original Deep Listening Festival which was planned for June 2020, the Deep Listening team have been working behind the scenes to create some alternative options. We are pleased to announce that instead of a whole weekend of Deep Listening we will be holding a few smaller events incorporating some of the themes and guest speakers from our original event.
An Afternoon with Ginn Fourie – Beyond Forgiving
Sunday 8 November, 2-4pm
Ginn is the author of The Lyndi Tree’, an autobiography of Hope and forgiveness. Come and hear her story. Event details and registration – http://www.trybooking.com/BLTRK
Art Exhibition & Akram Azimi – ‘Growing Strong Together’
Saturday 16 January 2021, evening.
Local artists interpret the theme through their artwork.
Guest Speaker: Akram Azimi – Young Australian of the Year 2013. Registration details available soon.
Both events will be held at the Margaret River Uniting Church. Follow the Facebook page for regular updates about these events – https://www.facebook.com/deeplisteningmruc/
Deep Listening Festival invites you to step outside your normal busy schedule to engage, connect and listen. Through an impressive collection of speakers, presenter and artists you will hear wonderful stories to inspire and enrich. Listen to positive stories of overcoming adversity, be inspired by art and hear from the artists, and find ways to broaden your understanding of the community around you.
The festival, hosted by the Margaret River Uniting Church, arose from the congregation’s desire to engage with the wider community, and to share stories through music, storytelling and art. The inspiration for the weekend came from a similar festival run in rural Victoria called ‘Sacred Edge’.
Here’s what participants had to say about our 2019 Festival!
