Open Space, held at Bond Chapel each Tuesday at noon, provides the Divinity School community with a unique opportunity for conversation, reflection, and fellowship around the things that enliven us, weigh on our hearts and minds, and give our work here meaning. All are welcome to come hear from diverse members of the community, to be opened and heartened by music or a reflective silence that points us beyond ourselves, and to wrestle (sometimes ritually) with the tensions we — as people who come from many places and traditions — see in our lives and in our world.
Each quarter’s speakers address a different theme, in the hopes that in their sharing of particular responses to the prompt, we will all hear something to stir our imaginations or draw us together.
The spring quarter theme is What do/will you remember? It is inspired by Joy Harjo's poem, Remember.
To volunteer as a speaker or performer, please contact the Open Space coordinator, Annemarie Kalson: annemariek @ uchicago.edu
