A million secrets
Date: Thu, Oct 19th
Time: 1:30pm - 3pm
Location: We have moved the location of this event to MacDonald - Heaslip Hall (Sheridan Theatre) at TRC! (Bwing)
First 50 people are granted a free lunch and meet and greet with Frank, Founder of PostSecret
With more than a million PostSecret books sold, two million social media followers and three million views of his standout TED talk, the PostSecret Phenomenon is bigger than ever. By turns thoughtful, funny, poignant and inspiring, this compendium of graphic haiku offers an intimate glimpse into both individual private lives and our shared humanity.
Over a decade ago, Frank Warren began a community art project that captured the popular imagination and became a worldwide obsession. He handed out postcards to strangers and left them in public places—asking people to share a secret they had never told anyone and mail them back to him anonymously. The idea went viral, and to this day people are still mailing Frank artful confessions from all over the world.
No restrictions are made on the content of the secret; only that it must be completely truthful and must never have been spoken before.
"There are two kinds of secrets, the ones we keep from others and those we hide from ourselves." — Frank Warren
Entries often confess something deeply personal – embarrassing habits, hidden desires, hidden acts of kindness and even criminal activity.
Students will have the opportunity to submit their own PostSecret anonymously! Post cards will be given out at the event.
* We will also have opportunities prior to the event for you to create your own postcard at our private booths set up at the clubs fair happening Oct 11 & 12 ― arts and craft supplies will be provided!
