Winter Welcome
If you had one story to share with the world, what would you say?

That is the question posed by Dear World, an interactive, award-winning portrait project that unites people through pictures in their distinct message-on-skin style. Colleges and Universities invite Dear World to take portraits over a series of days, culminating with an interactive and emotionally stimulating event. Dear World explores the powerful connections between students, faculty and staff through messages written on the body. At the evening finale, the Dear World team shares portraits and stories that will make you smile, cry, and laugh out loud. Select students have the chance to share the stories behind their powerful portraits to their peers.

Each member of Cal State LA has a unique experience, identity and story to share with the world. Hundreds of students, faculty, and staff will participate by writing messages of hope, inspiration and overcoming challenges. Join us in sharing #DearCalStateLA stories with the world and showcasing the powerful identities that makes Cal State LA such a special place.

Join us for the Dear World Open Portrait Shoot from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Cal State LA, Library North 1st Floor Lobby and our Storytelling & Photo Reveal from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Cal State LA University- Student Union Theatre.

*Please bring Cal State LA ID to participate in the Campus Wide Portrait Shoot.
