Our world has witnessed countless losses over the last two and a half years. Join the CU community and Illini Hillel to honor personal and collective loss through a story slam on the evening of Saturday, August 6th. This event also honors Tisha b’Av, a Jewish day of mourning for communal loss that takes place on the 9th of the Hebrew month of Av.
We will be starting at 6:30pm at 25 O'Clock Brewing Company. This event is 18+

Sign up here to share a story (no longer than 5 minutes) on the theme of LOSS:

We encourage you to consider “story” and “loss” broadly - death is one kind of loss, and words tell one kind of story. Loss-themed art of any kind is welcome. We are looking forward to story-sharing, wit(h)nessing, and gathering in community to honor our collective losses.
