Home: Bringing Compassion to Life

October 6, 2019

An embrace of community and a look at what home means to each of us. 5 community speakers living in Metro Atlanta shared their perspectives of “home,” expanding our capacity to be at home and help others develop a sense of belonging and safety. How can we use compassion to work towards creating a safe, affordable, comfortable home for everyone? We explored those questions and sought their answers in a space of storytelling and the shared human experience of home.

Mirrors: Bringing Compassion to Life

October 16, 2018

At Compassionate Atlanta, we know that stories helped build bridges. We recognize our common humanity when we are exposed to other people’s stories. And we know that theater is all about the concept of sharing stories. On October 16, 2018 we hosted a special event called Mirrors: Bringing Compassion to Life. An evening of compassionate storytelling, 5 individuals shared their personal stories of how compassion changed their lives. Held at Theatrical Outfit—Atlanta’s second-oldest professional theater company—and produced by award-winning actor/playwright/storyteller Suehyla El-Attar, these stories represent a broad portrait of Atlanta and pull back the curtain on our shared humanity.
