Forgiveness Project Exhibit
Siena Retreat Center is pleased to host the International Forgiveness Project Exhibit
July 31-August 13, 2016. Open to public each day 8:30am - 8:30pm
The Exhibit is a 20+ panel, thought-provoking collection of images and personal narratives exploring forgiveness in the face of atrocity. Launched in London in 2004, the Exhibit has been displayed in over 550 venues worldwide. Drawing together voices from South Africa, the United States, Israel, Palestine, Northern Ireland, and England, the exhibition examines forgiveness as a healing process, a path out of victimhood and, ultimately, a journey of hope.
