was presented to

Heidi Stillman of Lookingglass Theatre

on April 26, 2010

 As playwright George Bernard Shaw said, “We use a glass mirror to see our faces. We use the arts to see our souls.” With the presentation of the first Raven Award for Excellence in Art and Entertainment, we honored Lookingglass Theatre Ensemble Member Heidi Stillman, an artist who allowed us a glimpse of our souls with her adaptation and direction of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov performed during the 2008 Lookingglass Season.

The Raven Foundation seeks to make religion reasonable, violence unthinkable and peace a possibility.  By entering into the conversations taking place in the arts, entertainment and wider culture around war and peace, violence, identity and desire, we hope to challenge conventional wisdom and open pathways to authentically peaceful communities.
