Dear World Storytelling Session
Time: Friday, April 14, 2017 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM PDT
Location: 9 & 10 Multipurpose Room
Dear World's program begins with a simple question: "If you had one story to share with the world, what would you say?" Students, faculty, staff, and administration will have the chance to reflect on their identities, find the words to communicate their personal stories, and come together to share and illuminate the diversity of the UCSC community. At the evening finale, the Dear World team shares some of our favorite portraits and stories of incredible people we have met across our journey that will make you smile, cry, and laugh out loud. The student speakers will then get the chance to share the stories behind their powerful portraits to their peers. This is one of the most powerful moments of the event where the audience find a piece of them in each of these stories. The event ends with a culminating slideshow of the day's portraits.
