January 31 • 7:00-8:30pm

Developed by the Sundance Institute Theatre Program and global design firm IDEO, Creative Tensions fosters openness and connection through a new kind of dialogue.

Please join this conversation on your feet with Hadi Tabbal (Actor, Playwright, Producer), Emma Houston (Director of Diversity & Inclusion, Salt Lake County), and Moderator Christopher Hibma (Producing Director Theatre Program, Sundance
Institute) to explore what tolerance means to each of us, where our assumptions lie, and how we might construct a more tolerant world. Participants stand and move. Free but reservations suggested to guarantee admission.
