essence of a person
You and me.
A human being.
This year, we explore what it means to “be”. Reflecting on experiences that form and shape our identity; stories that connect us with other human beings; responsibilities that give us meaning and purpose.
Join us as we rediscover the true essence of “being” -- through embracing the different perspectives of people from all walks of life; through engaging with other human beings and Mother Nature. Together, let us redefine The Nature of Being.
