What We Need Is Here: Hope, Hard Times & the Human Possibility

Carrie & Parker come together to create an evening concert designed to encourage a new kind of conversation-one that bridges our divides and helps restore civic community. In a time when it is easy to feel overwhelmed, discouraged or cynical, they offer a journey of mind and spirit characterized by thoughtfulness, realism, vulnerability, good humor and hope.

Parker Palmer is a writer, teacher and activist whose work speaks deeply to people in many walks of life. He is founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal. Carrie Newcomer is described as a "prairie mystic" because so many of her songs are based right here in Indiana and are deeply rooted in her Quaker faith. Gary Walters, a performing and recording musician, composer, arranger and Butler University educator will accompany Carrie. He has performed and recorded with many of Central Indiana's finest musicians, including the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

Festival seating, doors open at 7:15PM
