Eyewitness accounts of the largest week-long public cultural Catholic event in the world. The Rimini Meeting for 30 years has sought to create points of contact between experiences and people of different faiths and cultures.
Keynote Speaker: John SEXTON, President of New York University
With Prof. Brad GREGORY, Associate Professor of History, University of Notre Dame, Emilia GUARNIERI, President of the "Rimini Meeting" Foundation, Dr. Daniel SULMASY, Professor of Medicine and Ethics, University of Chicago, and Dr. Joseph WEILER, Joseph Strauss Professor of Law, New York University
Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center and Communion and Liberation
New York Encounter is a three-day cultural festival organized by Crossroads Cultural Center and Communion and Liberation. The idea of a "cultural festival" starts from the perception that there is a need for a fresh start in education and a new vibe for cultural initiatives. It also starts from the desire to communicate in New York the remarkable vastness, openness, richness, and profundity of cultural life and a passion for what is human that springs from the education to the Catholic faith taking place in Communion and Liberation.
