Description

The alpine 2020 fellowship

A substantial amount of recent discourse has focused on isolating different groups to point out features that separate them – be they race, gender or privilege. We wonder what a conversation would look like that focused on bringing us together as opposed to driving us apart?

We postulate that forgiveness is a crucial element of such a conversation, and we would like to explore and discuss the viability of this thesis.

More Details

Every year we pick a theme that we think will encourage discussion, debate and thought. For 2020, we’ve selected Forgiveness and Retribution, a pertinent theme for our times.
