About the theme: RIOTS AND REVELATIONS
How have riots and revelations been part of your history and how will they shape the future? How do you find peace in a time of war on our bodies and communities? Do you create powerful, exciting, and energizing riots? Are revelations quiet and introspective or publicly celebrated moments, movements, and histories? What are your personal riots and/or revelations? How are communities around the world rising up? What new ways of living are being revealed for the future?
