Agora | Global Poverty and Local Advocacy: Seeing, Caring, and Engaging

Global Poverty combines two words that for the majority of us describes something abstract that impacts people somewhere else. But to millions of people, both near and far, these words describe the daily realities of violence, disease, hunger, injustice, and despair.

On October 19 Agora and the ONE Campaign will host "Global Poverty and Local Advocacy: Seeing, Caring, and Engaging" at W83 Ministry Center. Michael Gerson, Edith Jibunoh, and Tim Keller will discuss some of the issues contributing to global poverty, ways we can engage in the fight against it, and the moral vision necessary to unite our collective efforts.

Michael Gerson is an op-ed columnist for The Washington Post and a Policy Fellow with the ONE Campaign; Edith Jibunoh is World Bank Group’s Civil Society Adviser and former Global Policy Director at the ONE Campaign; Tim Keller is the founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

Bridging the gap between those who know of the existence of Global Poverty and those who experience its devastation requires honest dialogue and active engagement at all levels of society.

Tickets are $15 - purchase them here.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m., program starts at 7:30.

Workshop with Imago Verbosa Artist David Hollier

Artist David Hollier hosts a workshop to demonstrate the processes by which he creates “Imago Verbosa,” the current series exhibiting in the Gallery at W83. Using his vintage typewriter, David will share one of his techniques and discuss his approach in choosing images and text.

 

In his series “Imago Verbosa,” David Hollier creates images of cultural and political icons as composites of their famous words in the form of painted and typed text. Part social commentary and part documentary, Hollier’s work literally blurs the lines between pop culture and politics and invites us to consider the power of words to influence and endure.

Free and open to the public but please RSVP HERE.

"Turning" Opening Reception

09.jpg

"Turning" by Ben Weathers is an installation of twenty-eight paintings, each a recording from a day in the ripening of a banana. He focuses on how a banana can be just as beautiful as a rainbow or have the same sublime quality as the grand canyon. Often looking for things to “become more messy than their intentions,” Weathers hopes this exhibit will be “an experience complicated by feeling and understanding.”

The Opening Reception is Tuesday, November 14 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
All Gallery at W83 exhibits are free and open to the community from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

The Gospel According to Bach
Jun

8:00pm 8:00pm

The Gospel According to Bach

New York Poetry and Song presents The Gospel According to Bach, a performance of various arias and chorales from the two great Passions of Saint Matthew and Saint John. Bach’s overarching architecture and development of musical material are signature marks in these pieces, just as they are in his non-liturgical compositions. These aspects assert the force of mind that was Bach’s. It is, however, in the ordering of movements, detailed symbolism embedded into melodic lines, and emotional breadth steeped into the bones of these works, that the heart of Bach is revealed — revealed in a profound profession of faith.

Admission is free, suggested donation of $20. All proceeds will go to International Justice Mission (IJM). For more information on New York Poetry and Song and the concert, please visit newyorkpoetryandsong.org

"Hope: An Exhibit of Uncertain Faith"
Mar
2
to Apr 9

"Hope: An Exhibit of Uncertain Faith"

The word hope is one used when we desire something but do so with uncertainty. Merriam-Webster defines to hope as "to want something to happen or to be true and think that it could happen or be true." The Biblical concept of hope, however, is defined with a certainty we lack. The Book of Hebrew says, "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see." In "Hope: An Exhibit of Uncertain Faith" women of faith in New York City visually work out the challenges and persistence of hope in the face of doubt. Curated by Christina Young.

Exhibiting Artists: Lourdes Bernard, Karen Hartmann, Teuta Ibriqaj, Lindsay Kolk, Teressa Valla and Kristen Somody Whalen

Exhibition opens March 2, 2017, runs through April 9, 2017. Open daily 8 a.m.-9 p.m.
