SEEKS TO INSPIRE AWARENESS AND ACTIVISM
The LifeArt Forum is an international Forum organized by the LifeArt Festival bringing together humanitarian panels, films, music, art and events. The LifeArt Forum provides an independent platform for debate and collaboration on humanitarian issues and art forms. Its activities include advocacy and projects that deal with humanitarian concerns.
This forum seeks to inspire awareness and activism. We will learn from experts on the expansive human trafficking industry, speak with movement leaders, social media activists, investigators, and hear from shelter directors and survivors who will share their stories from rescue to aftercare and recovery.
The LifeArt Youth Forum seeks to inspire awareness and activism, and offers a unique opportunity for youth to voice their opinions, share ideas, and think together about what they can do to make a difference in their world.
Author and activist Nicole Bromley sensitively shines a light on sexual abuse, while educating and empowering student audiences to find their voice, and be a solution to an ever growing problem. Sharing her internationally recognized keynote, "Our Little Secret," Nicole uses her own life story to break the silence, and bring hope and healing to others.
