The Quakers are Coming: FGC Gathering, 2011

Listen!  

Listen to the sounds and voices of this year's FGC Gathering on the Grinnell College campus in Grinnell, Iowa.  I speak with dance photographer, Arthur Fink, about the spirituality of photography and Demi Miller about his infamous "Karma Shave" signs dotted around the gathering.  Glen Retief, author and teacher, reads from the diary of one "Quaking" FGC-er, and I speak with two members of the FLGBTQ community about radical inclusivity.  I also speak with a few spirited Quaker children and record a taste of the college dining experience.
