Tara Muldoon - Forgiveness Project

Looks like another great line-up for this Manifesto Festival headlining event.

F-YOU: The Forgiveness Project is straight-forward and honest: we create a conversation about forgiveness. We are a collective of professionals who desire to see unity replace resentment and forgiveness where bitterness is building. We feel the power in saying three simple words – F-You – “I forgive you”

Created by Tara Muldoon and Gravity Affect, supported by Manifesto, Heeling Soul, PPEG and IMMNF, F-YOU has become an acclaimed Project that relieves the community of everyday egos, pride and image.

Honest conversation, no judgment.
Moving forward without looking back.

Join us as we strip the layers of persona, ego and resentment to discuss what really matters: keeping it real.

Moderated by Tona.

Included speakers: Bryan Espiritu, Ian Andre Espinet, Katrina Lopes, Latoya “JaneFrFinch” Rodney, Christine “Chris Jay” Jordan, DJ Miss Kittie.

A panel of six people, a mix of race, age and gender, speaking about a time in their lives they had to for give either themselves or another. F-YOU is an inviting, tell-all event that aligns personal growth with self-improvement. This event has the potential to impact our community and young adults by way of real-life portrayals of hardships, and over coming barriers that at one point seemed insurmountable. Hearing first-hand trials and tribulations from people just like us can open the door to motivate and inspire us to do better, to be better, and most importantly, feel better.

We at F-You share a desire to see more unity and confidence among our generation.. In a world filled with anger and resentment, it becomes easy to harden our hearts to the idea of letting go. Forgiveness is not permission, or predisposed justification – it is the release of detrimental feelings, thoughts and emotions that can consume us. F-You is a multi-faceted organization which includes panel-based community events, a T-shirt line and a collection of journals. The panel is an impassioned and inspiring event, featuring speakers who have overstepped the line between being a victim and being a sur vivor in the face of their own internal adversities. A true showcase of strength and inner character, F-You will reveal how forgiveness is the power to heal yourself and others by resisting blame and granting pardon to those who have wronged us. With guest speakers from every walk of life, including the ever-testing entertainment industry, F-You will encourage and empower all of us to let go… for no one other than ourselves.
