For the first time in Europe, Frank Warren, the founder of the online phenomenon PostSecret.com, will bring his highly anticipated live shows to venues across the UK and Ireland from 7 – 17 December 2012. It is the first time these events have been performed in Europe, bringing together the best elements of online and offline communities.
PostSecret is one of the most popular blogs on the web and was recently named the “People’s Voice Winner” at the 2012 Webby Awards in the NetArt category. The PostSecret Project, which has been featured in The Guardian, the Financial Times, Times of London and The Independent, is a safe and anonymous “place” in which people from around the world anonymously send secrets within highly personal and artfully decorated postcards.
Since November 2004, Frank has received more than 500,000 postcards, with secrets that range from confessions of personal beliefs and hidden acts of kindness to people’s deepest fears. The secrets are provocative, profound and deeply compelling, revealing our desires, regrets, and obsessions. Frank calls them "graphic haiku”; beautiful, elegant, and small in structure that are powerfully emotional.
