About the Programme/Event

The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi acknowledges how impermanence, imperfection and incompletion are life itself. This talk takes a look at what closure means in relation to new openings or beginnings. In particular, why vengeance, as Nicole Kidman said, is a lazy form of grief. 

This programme is organised in collaboration with SAMH Creative MINDSET Hub.
