Dr. Ada Cheng, an educator-turned-artist, will weave together stories and literary writings to present the power of storytelling and examine its critical role in academia as a path for inquiry, dialogue, and transformation. She will reflect upon a path forward toward transformation and healing, through which story-sharing serves as a process of truth-claiming, witnessing, and affirmation. This performance is 50 minutes, followed by a facilitated dialogue.
