Bu Etkinlik Hakkında

To dare is an act of faith. Even if we don't know what the outcome will be, we muster up the courage to make the rising leap. At the core of daring, you will find that courage and defiance go hand in hand. We dare to challenge the stories that have been passed down to us and that limit our imagination.

How can we muster up the courage to do impossible things when we pour out stories that no longer serve us but whose path of progression seems uncertain? In The Field Guide to Disappear, Rebecca Solnit invites us: “Leave the door open to the unknown, to the dark. That's where the most important things come from, where you come from and where you're going.” The door is open. Do you dare to take a step?

The theme for September, Courage, was chosen by CreativeMornings/Porto Alegre and illustrated by Mitti Mendonça.

The language of the event, which will take place on Friday, September 17 via Zoom, is Turkish.
