Friday Arts Project* & Bird and Key collaborated on a weekend-long gathering dedicated to an exploration of beauty. Kirk moderated several engagements with artists, musicians, writers and participants. Participants had opportunities to experience various forms of art and engaged with artists through interviews and dialogue.


Here is the second of several audio recordings of that weekend.
