Dear World Open Photo Shoot and Storytelling | 9 AM |  Student Center Lobby

Dear World Storytelling Event | 7 PM | Student Center Ballroom

If you had one story to share with the world, what would you say? Each member of Sonoma State University has a unique experience, identity and story to share with the world. Dear World, an interactive, award-winning portrait project, unites people through pictures in their distinct message-on-skin style. Come celebrate individuals and their stories in all of their diversity and learn something about a friend, colleague, or stranger; by the end of the night, students may begin to realize that through stories, there’s actually much more that brings people together than what keeps them apart.
