AFP 2017: Sharing Stories/Connecting Communities - Call for Proposals

The Anne Frank Project invites members of the campus community to submit proposals for AFP 2017: Sharing Stories/Connecting Communities, the ninth annual social justice festival, which will be held October 3 and 4. AFP’s annual festival is an experiential exchange of ideas with a focus on processing theory into practice. We seek performances, workshops, and exhibits that actively engage participants in kinesthetic learning opportunities that

  • explore the AFP 2017 theme;
  • teach tools and vocabulary for community-building, conflict resolution, and identity exploration;
  • embrace the life and writing of Anne Frank;
  • explore a diverse array of disciplines, cultures, and viewpoints.

Proposals are due Saturday, July 1. All applicants will be contacted by mid-July. Please submit proposals using the AFP 2017 proposal form.

About Our Theme
Our increasingly divisive world is actually the product of a small number of powerful communities rather than the multiple diverse groups of people whose stories are often silenced by oppression, or simply unknown. AFP 2017 encourages presenters and participants to surface these marginalized communities, navigate their difficulties, address conflicts, disassemble assumptions, and practice sharing stories to connect communities and improve the world.

For more information about the proposal process and the Anne Frank Project, please visit the AFP Social Justice Festival website.

Questions? Ideas? Please contact Eve Everette, assistant director of AFP.
