About PostSecret Live

“We all carry a secret that would break your heart if you just knew what it was. And if we could remember that, there might be more understanding and peace in the world.” – Frank Warren

Frank Warren is the most trusted stranger in America. He is the creator of The PostSecret Project – a collection of 1,000,000+ artful secrets that have been mailed to his home on postcards, anonymously. The PostSecret website has become a phenomenon in itself, earning over 700 million views, and making it the world’s largest advertisement-free blog. In collaboration with NC State’s renowned Crafts Center, Frank will join us for a lively lecture based on his popular TED Talk. Come see the postcards that were banned from his six bestselling PostSecret books. Hear the inspiring stories behind the secrets. Listen to some of Frank’s favorite secrets…and share your own.

Since fall 2017, the Crafts Center has been collecting “PackSecrets” postcards from across campus and around the community as part of PostSecretU. The result is an installation of locally generated secrets in the Crafts Center gallery, on view through fall of 2018. At times hilarious and heartbreaking, the secrets reflect complex issues that many of us struggle with: intimacy, trust, meaning, humor, and desire.

This talk is scheduled as part of National Suicide Awareness Month. Need to talk? The NC State Counseling Center will be on hand in the lobby after the event and is available at 919.515.2423.
