What is Dear World?
Dear World is a charity organization whose mission is to inspire and connect people of all backgrounds, races and colors. Through a combination of inspirational keynote speakers and portrait sessions of the attendees that spark conversation and connection between people, Dear World seeks to focus attention on people stories and what brings us together and connects us all.
Each subjects is asked the question, "If you had one story to share with the world, what would you say?" They're then given the chance to creatively write a message on their skin that can prompt a story or conversation, and then have their portrait made. Some of these people's stories are decipherable by the message and some are not, which challenges the viewer to engage with the subject and ask themselves, "I wonder what that means?"
