We all have stories, but some are harder than others. Community Speaks, a forum started in 2011 by API Chaya at Tasveer for South Asians impacted by racism, discrimination, and other traumatic issues, provides a safe space for those stories to be shared as part of collective healing.
On May 13, the Bellevue Arts Museum will host Tasveer Community Speaks: Frames of Mind. Participants will present their tales of acceptance and self-love, offering solace to kindred spirits seeking that conversation. This event, part of Mental Health Awareness Month, will feature inspiring speakers like Chithra Jeyaram, Pooja Gupte, Jaydev Bhatija, and Nida Shaikh, who will share their personal experiences with sexuality, postpartum depression, body shaming, and trauma.
Through their narratives, we’ll learn how storytelling can lead to healing and empowerment, and failure can lead to success, and resilience and compassion can help us overcome even the toughest challenges. So let’s join together on May 13 at 7 PM PST and turn challenging conversations into heartwarming connections.
