Across racial, political, ethnic and religious divides, Love > Fear brings people together to engage the global crisis of human displacement. Through story, the community of Fuse favors faces over statistics, dialogue over diatribe, bridges over walls, and empathy over posturing.



Love > Fear is not a political or religious event. In the process of creation, we quickly discovered it isn’t an event at all, but a wave of diverse relationships moving out from common ground united in purpose and passion to serve. Through music, presentations, and video stories, we invite you to enter into the experience of the refugee and see both the magnitude of suffering and resiliency of hope.



Ben Franklin wrote, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”



In the hope the involvement extends beyond one evening, agency directors caring for refugees will be on hand to provide practical steps to make a difference in Asheville and around the world.
