ABOUT "A STUDENTS' DIARY"
Have you ever thought about what it means to be fragile?
If you have decided to continue reading this text then maybe you have thought about it at some point in your life and you want to know where this is going… or maybe quite the opposite, and you are just curious of what is coming next. In either case welcome to “A students’ diary”, a discussion space created by Culturit, where we can share ideas and feelings about fragility together or simply listen to others’ stories.
We are hosting 6 meetings of about 30/40 minutes each focused on a different aspect of fragility, such as “fragility of reality” and “fragility to protect”. Our aim is not that of giving answers to specific questions, but rather offering insights on everyday thoughts and experiences. Feel free to open up and hear what others have to say.
