Diversity events this week

From the Diversity and Inclusion committee, the first in a weekly posting with events of interest. Thanks to Laurel Sarfan and the committee for curating this!

*Dear World, Thursday December 7th: an interactive and award winning event (looks beautiful and moving!) consisting of two components:

Portrait Shoot, 11:15 a.m.–2 p.m.
Shade Family Room, Armstrong Student Center

Come sit for a portrait, where you will be asked to reflect on a personal story of who you were, who you are, or who you want to be. Then write a message that symbolizes YOUR story for your portrait.

Portrait Reveal and Afterglow Reception, 7:30 p.m.
Fritz Pavilion, Armstrong Student Center

Come see what everyone had to say at the keynote event. The Dear World team will show their work from around the world, followed by a presentation of all of our community’s portraits. This evening is sure to be equal parts powerful and memorable. A reception will immediately follow the live show, and if you did not have a chance to get your portrait made during the day, Dear World will be taking portraits and guiding you through their unique story sharing process to capture your very own portrait. Don’t miss it!
