About the event
María will be speaking about the creative process of her book, The Magical Closet Mysteries and focusing on its themes of cultural and emotional intelligence, social justice and the opportunity that writing offers us to heal ourselves and one another.
The Anne Frank Project’s thirteenth annual social justice festival supports the theme for the 150th Anniversary of SUNY Buffalo State: “Believe. Inspire. Achieve.” These three words symbolize the storyline of our students’ journey through college, and the people and experiences that strengthen them. The workshops, artwork, and speakers at AFP 2021 will focus this storyline through the lens of social justice: Who or what pushes us toward excellence amidst the multiple odds and obstacles against us? This year’s festival seeks multidisciplinary workshops and artworks that define and expose the Belief and Inspiration required to Achieve an improved world.
