Synchronicity: A Celebration of Art, Empathy, and Action

Like great art and literature, Narrative 4 takes all of us into the depths and complexities of other souls and enables virtual strangers to inhabit the depth and complexities of their own. In the end, it awakens us to the beauty, tragedy, humor, wonder, variety, commonality and endless possibilities of human interaction.

Check out our 9th annual – and now virtual! – celebration of music and literature, entitled “Synchronicity,” featuring music and words from Sting, Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes, Rosanne Cash, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Ishmael Beah, Darrell Bourque, Assaf Gavron, Ruth Gilligan, Marlon James, Colum McCann, Rob Spillman, Babalwa Tetyana, Terry Tempest Williams, Lila Azam Zanganeh, and many others!

These renowned authors and musicians will weave a symphony of sounds designed to add an exclamation point to our Summer of Impact, while also launching the academic year ahead. This evening will lay the foundation for our global arts network, which has been created to harness the power of stories to build capacity for compassion. The music of the world suggests that stories lead to action and ultimately to enormous change.  Watch as lyrics and poetry help build greater trust in our world, one synchronistic story at a time. Spiritus Mundi.
