Love the Questions, Genesis at the Crossroads’ multi-segment salon series, explores a set of essential questions with panels of renowned thought leader speakers and moderators. The curated audiences are equal in importance to the speakers. The accompanying artistic program incorporates and engages the arts and artists to highlight/augment the conversation(s). The moderators will also address their personal “burning question” in the thematic context of the specific salon inquiry, global leadership, social responsibility and world peace. All salons will have artistic or cultural institutions and distinguished community partners associated with them; such instituitions have an opportunity to be part of the Genesis Academy for Global Leadership’s array of our long-term community partnerships. The salon construct ultimately morphs into the artist and scholar-in-residence program once the physical Genesis Academy and the Campus Peace Hub stand and the students are enrolled. It will continue indefinitely for the surrounding Chicagoland community and continue to engage the Academy’s student leaders. All programs will be filmed and/or web streamed for global audience engagement. The salons are designed to be re-mounted in other cities.

What if, in contrary… it has been here for a long time already, and only our blindness and weakness has prevented us from seeing it around us and within us, and kept us from developing it?
