Festival of Friendshp

29 Sep 2017


Our theme for the 2017 Convivium Festival is the same one chosen for the 2017 Meeting for Friendship Among Peoples. This is the second year in a row that we have taken the Meeting’s theme and made it our own.The treasures of human creativity and common life, our intellectual heritage, the history of invention and discovery, and our individual and shared striving for the “more” of existence all speak of humanity’s desire for completion and perfection.First of all, we recognize that reality is a great gift and that our lives, with all their particularity – our strengths and our limits – were neither chosen nor created by us.

Sept 30th 1 pm: Refugees: Not Numbers, but People with Younus Mirza, Islamic Studies Professor, Allegheny College; and Ilaria Schnyder von Wartensee, Research Assistant Professor, Keough School of Global Affairs, Notre Dame University
