June 21-24, 2012: The Wild Goose Festival
Shakori Hills, North Carolina
Maurice will be a speaker and panelist (along with his beloved) at this year’s Wild Goose Festival outside Durham, N.C. A cousin of the storied Greenbelt Festival in the U.K., the Goose is a four-day festival of “justice, spirituality, music and art” on a farm in rural North Cackalacky. The justice theme of this year’s festival has a “particular focus on the issue of prison, criminal justice reform, and restorative justice, hearing from both survivors of crime who advocate for a more compassionate justice system and exonerated former prisoners; we will offer workshops on forgiveness and revenge, and restorative justice.”
Maurice will be speaking twice on Saturday, June 23:
11 a.m. >> “Innocence and Exonerations,” (a conversation with Theresa Newman and James Coleman, co-directors of The Innocence Project at Duke University.)
3 p.m. >> “Pursing Innocence, Finding Faith“
