That intellectual itch, only resolved through painstaking learning and experiencing about the world outside and within, often has no place to be shared but is more often than not chalk full of rich insight and points for connection. Saturday, April 14 KuumbaTalks took place and this space came to exist for a brief night. 5 presenters talked about the things that keep them up at night, what they know best, that which makes them come alive and what guides their understanding of people. Isaiah Sommers, Kathleen Brophy, Osasuyi Tongo, Ben Kramer, and Kyle Huninghake all talked about empathy but from very different points of references. Reality as a construction of the brain, our power as consumers, unconditional love understood through family struggle, the limits of language and what lays beyond, and a story of an experience of an architect in search for real building. Check out this round of K.Talks, you wont be let down.
