Buckelew Programs and Frank Warren, creator of PostSecret, present an evening of art, storytelling and community engagement to support suicide prevention, stigma reduction, and mental health.
PostSecret is a public art project, launched by former crisis line counselor, Frank Warren. Frank created a project to test the idea that when people anonymously share a burden, they feel better; shame and isolation are reduced, belonging ensues. He did this by offering postcards, blank on one side and his home address on the other. Frank invited people to mail him their secrets, and they did.
Since 2005, PostSecret has attracted 1.5 million followers on Facebook, with a new batch of postcard secrets released every Sunday. Frank Warren has delivered a TED talk, presented at SXSW and has over 1 million actual postcards from anonymous senders. 300 postcards will be on display before (by appointment) and during the event on the campus of Sonoma Country Day School.
