They will share short talks on what they do best, serving both as a source of knowledge and inspiration for youth in the Vail Valley.

 

SESSION 1 | RE-IMAGINING OLD GRAVES 

Look into the often painful past of our emotions, actions and relationships. Ho do we recover from devastating personal loss, or change a system that has outlived its intent? How do we acknowledge these failure and sufferings, and actively work with their memories to move forward? Growing up in a world where the definitions of who we are, where we live and  how we get things done seem to adjust and expand every day. It’s an exciting time, but can also be a confusing one.

 

SESSION 2 | KALEIDOSCOPES OF WORDS: WHERE YOUR THROAT SHOULD BE IS A FIRE 

Explore the things that link us together: stories. How do the histories we choose affect our outlook on life and event our knowledge of the world? What interactions with time and place can this create? Delivering funny, compelling and personal talks, this session’s speakers focus on messges we all need to hear. No matter if you’ve heard it before – these testimonials will either give a voice to your own thoughts or introduce you to an entirely new perpective. Hear their voices, but ore importantly, see their flames burning bright.
