Dear World Project

Dear World, an internationally-recognized storytelling and portrait project, will be visiting George Mason University on April 11 as part of Mason’s International WeekDear World has visited college campuses across the nation and has been invited to Mason this April so that the campus community can share meaningful messages as part of the Dear World global social project.

Check out a video from last year’s Dear World Project at Mason and the amazing stories from our students, faculty, and staff.

Here’s how you can get involved:

Step #1: Get on the list (and invite a +1). Sign up for a one-hour facilitation. This is where Dear World will hear your story and take your portrait. These workshops will take place on April 11 from 10 to 11 a.m. and from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Dewberry Hall, followed by the photo shoot. The facilitations are exciting and memorable events. Feel free to invite others who you think would be interested in attending. Send them this link and make sure they also sign up as soon as possible (space is limited).

Step #2: Free your mind. Come to your facilitation on-time and with an open mind. Dear World’s immersive storytelling process will guide you to select a story only you can tell and connect with other featured students, faculty, and staff.

Step #3: Get social. Post your new picture to social media ASAP and spread the word about the live show.

Step #4: Enjoy the show. Attend the interactive live show on Wednesday, April 11, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Dewberry Hall to see your portrait on the big screen, learn more about Dear World, and hear stories from your own campus.
