Theme: Dear Us

This event occurred on

Tokyo, Tôkyô

Humans value connection. The energy we exchange is a powerful source that can’t be seen, but could be felt. What happens when these bonds are suddenly cut off?

Letters are a way for people to come together. Whether they be handwritten or typed, the world we live in has provided us with plenty of opportunities to interact. We convey messages and with them information, stories and emotions. Sometimes it’s even the best way for people to communicate their true feelings to one another. In a time where people are told to keep a distance, these words can make us feel closer to the people around us.

“Dear”, as in the way we begin letters. “Us”, as in anyone in the world.

Our theme “Dear Us,” addresses everyone through these inspiring talks about connecting to others and ourselves.

We hope that these messages can inspire you to reflect on what connection truly means.

Dear Us,

This is our invitation to connect.
