2018 is the 10th annual edUi conference and we’re celebrating by bringing back some highlights of conferences past. One thing you’ve told us you really enjoyed were the live story telling sessions we held in 2013 and 2015.
The traditional gift for 10th wedding anniversaries is tin or aluminum because both materials represent the durability and flexibility needed to sustain a loving union. So the theme this year is: Test Your Metal (Mettle).
Get creative! Stories should be true and personal (whoa buddy, not THAT personal) and can fit the theme in any number of ways. Tell us a story about strength, flexibility, the testing of resolve — or about that one time you tried out for a heavy metal band, or when you had that metal plate installed in your cranium. Anything to do with “mettle” or “metal” in any sense of the word is fair game.
- What: True stories told live on stage by edUi participants on the theme: Test Your Metal (Mettle)
- When: Tuesday, October 9, 2018 (part of that evening’s reception)
- Where: R2 Club inside Rapture downtown Charlottesville
Each story should be 5-8 minutes long (there will be a timekeeper). Prizes will be awarded with a grand prize chosen by audience vote for the best story.
