How do you encounter with the world?
My world is not complete without others.
To see what was unseen.
To verbalize what was unspoken.
To sense what was unnoticed.
To transform and nurture.
Between you and me, me and society.
At True Colors ACADEMY, we will focus on social issues and often negelcted “discomforts” in daily lives through engaging with diverse people and their stories.
We advocate for a society where individuals can coexist with their differences through our LECTURE Series – a series of stimulating lectures and workshop open to the public, and the STUDIO Program – a program that explores new social relationships through dialogue and practice by members selected from an open call.
