Let's Talk Bodies: a spoken word event
Our culture has a complicated relationship with food, exercise, and body image. Over 30 million Americans will struggle with an eating disorder in their lifetime. This year during National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, individuals all over the country are telling their untold stories of body image struggles, disordered eating, recovery, identity, mental health, gender, sexuality, race, privilege, and class.
Do you have a story to tell?
If you have an experience you want to share, submit your poetry, short story, or music with us.
(Before submitting, please keep in mind that each performance will be limited to 7 minutes.)
Join our conversation on February 26 at 7:00pm in Tate Theater for an exploration of the impact of body image, eating disorders, and disordered eating on our UGA community members and spread hope that healing is possible and support is available.
Deadline for Submissions: February 10, 2020
