Please join us for an afternoon with Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Kruz. Sophia will discuss the inspiration behind "Little Stones", her award-winning feature-length documentary about four women in India, Brazil, Senegal and Kenya who are using art - music, dance, fashion and graffiti - to create social change.
Kruz will also lead an interactive conversation about how each of us has the capacity to change the world using our unique background and skill-set. By defining our own key social issues and embracing our talents and passion, our individual actions can have a ripple effect felt around the world. We all have the potential to be little stones, each contributing to a global mosaic of change.
