Festival Director: Tim Seibles
society there are ever-emerging questions and conflicts about
what is real or true. Implied by the whelming
presence of these passionate investigations is the deep human
need to see clearly, to proceed armed with a well-defined sense
of the world--its dangers and its life-sustaining wonders.
Fortunately there are always those few men and women among us
whose very lives are consumed by this wrestling with the many
complexities that terrify and enchant us. They are the ones
who learn to step into the hurricane, find the eye and return
with various maps through the storm to that still point where
understanding begins. It is nearly impossible to imagine
any vibrant society surviving without these fierce minds.
