All Day. See details for start time.
This is a reoccurring event. See below for more dates/times for this 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 stories of body image struggles, disordered eating, recovery, identity, mental health, gender, sexuality, race, privilege, and class.
To share your experience/thoughts on topics including body image, disordered eating, sexuality, class, and others, submit your poetry, short story, or music for inclusion in the event using the link below. Submissions are due by Monday, February 10, and can be performed by the writer/artist or by an event actor.
(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.
