Join us for a closing celebration with light refreshments and a final community conversation. The event is free, family-friendly, and open to all. Please RSVP to reserve your spot and so we know to prepare enough food.

What is joy? How do we experience joy? What are sources of joy? What does joy have to do with the "good life"? How can we communicate what we understand to be the "good life"?

This evolving, multimodal arts installation explores individual and communal understandings of joy and the good life. Beginning with various ways to express joy, we move to examine the possibilities of relating joy to the good life, and conclude with multiple perspectives on communicating the good life. We invite community members and the public to join us in this personal and corporate experience, helping to build a more nuanced understanding of the topic while providing space to appreciate, observe, and respond to others.

At the closing conversation, the curator team members will reflect on the process of observing, discussing, and making art about "joy and the good life." Visitors are welcome to listen and contribute perspectives.

All are welcome, RSVP today so we know to prepare enough food!

Thanks for the support of Joy and the Good Life Project, Yale Center for Faith and Culture.
