Storytelling is a powerful medium. It allows the expression, connection, and processing of shared - and new - experiences. It is our stories that connect us and giving voice to those stories allows us to heal.
OWN was created as a platform to reflect and include the experiences of Cal Poly Womxn as holistic individuals, written by and for self-identified women students. OWN explores how gender, feminism, social justice movements, race, ethnicity, culture, class, academics, family dynamics, sexual orientation, faith/spirituality, body image, sexual violence, sex, relationship, love, power, oppression, privilege, personal growth, and other intersecting identities create and contribute to the various experiences and lives of women.
The GEC hopes to empower female and women-identified students to share their own voices, and in doing so experience the power of storytelling for themselves. Students can submit their own stories and testimonies to share, represent, and speak to their own experiences at Cal Poly. OWN hopes to update the script every year with new material in order to stay true to the spirit of the production.
Submissions for 2018 Production of OWN are open. We will accept submissions throughout the year with the cut-off for 2018 consideration at the end of October 2017. If you have any further questions regarding submissions or the production, please email email@example.com.
