be·ing 


(noun) existence; being alive;

essence of a person

You and me.

A leader.


A feminist. 


A survivor.

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.
