No Shame-Depression Awareness
Depression Awareness. The assembly that ends depression with expression!
NO SHAME ASSEMBLY!
Self expression is a natural human desire, and most are unable to express themselves on a level that will satisfy that need. The purpose of NO SHAME ASSEMBLY is to offer creative minds the chance to be heard. Sing a song, recite poetry, show off the choreography you’ve been practicing in the mirror for so long, etc. No Shame assembly offers a platform for all to be able to be vulnerable without the fear of being shamed/judged.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
1. Expect to be met with 100% support.
2.Expect applause, as well as feedback on material in which you have shared.
3.Expect GREAT material, presented with passion and excitement.
4.Expect GREAT VIBES AND ENERGY!
1. NO NUDITY – 100% vulnerability is encouraged; however,nudity is prohibited.
2. ONLY POSITIVE CRITICISM ALLOWED – speakers may be very sensitive to the material in which they are sharing, so to help with comfort as well as vulnerability, keep thoughts that are not constructive to yourself.
3. BE ORIGINAL – at No Shame, we are interested in material that has been created by our speakers. Originality is encouraged, but not mandatory.
HOW ARE SPEAKERS CHOSEN?: Speakers will be chosen on a first come, first served basis. Depending on the time allotted and number of speakers present, speakers are given 5 minutes to be creative, and express themselves. Without speakers there is no assembly, likewise, if there is no audience, there is no assembly. Those who may not be comfortable with sharing material, will be encouraged to support and offer feedback to those who have presented material.
ONE LAST PURPOSE: The idea is to be comfortable in your own skin, and yourself! Society tells us that we should conduct ourselves a certain type of way, but we have free will, and what if your view doesn’t match up with that of society? This assembly, will give those of us who don’t see eye to eye with society, the opportunity to be vulnerable, and have NO SHAME!
