Sundance Institute’s Creative Tensions on Tolerance

A conversation that moves you. Developed by the Sundance Institute Theatre Program and global design firm IDEO, Creative Tensions fosters openness and connection through a new kind of dialogue. Creative Tensions offers a way to engage in meaningful dialogue on big topics. It’s about nuance and the opportunity to change your mind.

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.
