Resilience is defined as the capacity to recover. Rather than dwell on the pain of the past, resilience invites us to consider the future – more specifically, how we can build a strong future together. The Festival of Resilience offers moments for celebration, unity, and bonding, as well as important moments for somber reflection.
Designed by survivors of the attack on the Halle Synagogue in 2019, the Festival invites other groups who have been victims of right-wing extremist attacks to join together for unique rituals of remembrance and powerful coalition-building.
Throughout the Festival, there will be a sense of forward-looking, setting goals to strengthen the community we share.
