Inspiration Nation is highlighted by keynote speaker Frank Warren, the creator of “The PostSecret Project,” a collection of highly personal and artfully decorated postcards mailed anonymously from around the world.

In this interactive presentation of “PostSecret: Live!,” you will learn about the inspiration and history of the PostSecret project through the humor and humanity of the personal stories we keep to ourselves, and on rare occasions, share with others. The audience will see the hopeful, shocking, painful and inspirational secrets that brought hundreds of millions to the PostSecret blog, became six best-selling books, and a Smithsonian art exhibition. Warren, an internet phenomenon and recipient of the Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award, comes to Mount Ida with a visually and emotionally stunning program. PostSecret: Live! is open to the public.

The College is also honored to be premiering the program, “Mind Games”. This touring presentation was conceptualized to provide audiences with an honest glimpse into relationships gone from good to bad by the not-for-profit, “Every Great Reason.” This inaugural staging of the show will be presented to a select audience of Mount Ida students prior to setting out on a tour around the Northeast to college campuses, police training facilities, and other public service agencies.
