The festival is launching Compassion Speaks, an outreach program from Compassion Arts in which four or five special guests give voice to compassion in action through the arts and education. Guests share their work in relation to a specific topic by contributing a short talk, performance, or presentation. The program will be an integral part of Compassion Arts going forward and will take place in multiple cities.

Seeds of Reconciliation will focus on themes of healing our relationship with the life with which we share this planet through a new perspective on our narrative about animals. The event will feature a Playback Theatre performance of stories about animals in our lives from True Story Theater; special presentation of readings by artist and photographer Isa Leshko from her book Allowed to Grow Old; talk on rescued farm animal stories and compassionate living by Woodstock Sanctuary founder, author, and speaker Jenny Brown; musical performance by The Rattle & Thunder ensemble; and 46 Million Turkeys Community Art Project with Cheryl Miller.
