Q & A with our winner, Tara Muldoon of F-You, the Forgiveness Project:
1) Congratulations! What’s your project all about?
Thank-you so much for all you and Toronto Awesome do! F-You: The Forgiveness Project is a community-based organization that asks what forgiveness looks like in a variety of scenarios and experiences. We run panels, workshops and groups on the idea of forgiveness. Sometimes we work around a specific issue such as gang violence, relationships, addiction, topics around sex, etc.
We are just over two years old and run by a team of youth/young adults from a variety of backgrounds.
2) Forgiving someone isn’t an easy thing to do; it can be very emotional. Do people sometimes cry at your events?
Our events can provoke a variety of emotions including tears, anger and everything else under the sun. It’s all welcome and understood.
3) I’d like to talk about forgiveness, or I’d like to volunteer. How can I get in touch with you, and when is your next event?
We have monthly – sometimes weekly – events across the city and the next one is April 9th at the Jane+Finch mall.
