Link to event:

Fairy tales spark an interest in us from a young age, and teach us of excitement and adventure. This leaves us with a desire for certain aspects of life; for example, courage, confidence, and, of course fantasy. Fairy tales teach children vital lessons. Take confidence, for example.  We learn to have confidence because there is always a solution, no matter how hopeless the situation may seem. Fairy tales teach us how important it is to listen to our inner voice and to follow intuition.

Without fairy tales, we would not have this priceless testimony of what has always moved people all over the world. The longing for redemption is part of this; for liberation from a spell of evil. Fairy tales convey a universal idea of ​​morality- that it is not only proper to be considerate and helpful, but that it is also worthwhile.

In this session, Vanessa will present a modern fairy tale for adults: Mana and Tapu. This story aims to convey the biggest message of all: that there is nothing sadder than to find no meaning in one’s existence, and nothing more comforting than the fact that everyone has their own role in this adventure, which is called life, and is sometimes like a fairy tale.
