Thank you for taking a part of the Surviving Tsunami Waves (STW) Exhibition! It was a great success because of your participation. Thank you for sharing your presence and creativity.

What happened during the STW Exhibition?

–   STW Exhibition offered 22 sessions during the 10 days from March 11-20.  Many photos from the STW Exhibition are posted on our Facebook, and you can find more below!
–   138 buttons were completed. Check them out here.
–   392 people from Rochester participated (including Opening and Closing receptions)
–   212 people from Twin Cities participated, mostly at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, but 8 people came down from the cities to attend some sessions.

These numbers are great, but these numbers don’t begin to capture all the connections and friendships made through this event.  If you would like to share any reflective thoughts or additional stories, please feel free to contact us.  We would like to hear from you!

The theme of the closing reception was “Gather, Reflect, and Celebrate!”  The most difficult part of these three verbs is actually “gather.”  Attending an event requires tremendous effort to rearrange our everyday tasks.  So we thank you for taking the time and effort to make your presence possible!
