Disability Awareness Week: Dear World Finale

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

As Disability Awareness Week progresses, ODS in collaboration with the Center for Multicultural Student Services (CMSS) and the Orientation Office have arranged for The Dear World Project to conduct photo shoots and present at JMU. Dear World, an interactive event that allows students, faculty and staff to connect with one another, encourages participants to write their stories on their skin, which allows themselves and others to reflect on the subtlety and power in listening and reflecting on one another’s stories. The JMU community is welcome to come get their photo taken on Tuesday, March 29 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the JMU Student Success Center, Room 1075.

They are also invited to come to the Dear World Finale on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. in the Wilson Auditorium at JMU. The finale will give participants the opportunity to expand on their own stories, to learn more about their peers' stories and to see a collage of the photos.
