Creating Authentic Connections Through Storytelling


ACT 1: The Dear World Brain Tattoo Experience

You might have seen Dear World photos; sweet, inspiring messages written on the faces, arms and hands of everyone from Coach K, college first years to Syrian Refugees. But the journey to the message on skin is interactive, reflective and rooted in your personal narrative.

Be an active participant as you craft your own story and listen to the stories that others have to share. Don’t think you have a meaningful story or that you must pour your heart out? Fear not, Dear World has designed the experience to meet each participant where they’re at.

ACT 2: The Portrait Shoot

Dear World will capture portraits and videos of participants in their trademark style,

ACT 3: The Reveal

Many stories become one.

Led by our Dear World Storyteller, we present a memorable finale that reveals your portraits and showcases stories by and for participants.
