About this Event

The idea of Stepping out of the cave and facing the glaring sunlight was originated in early 300 BC by Plato. His famous allegory tells the story of people in the cave who have been exposed all their lives to shadows on a blank wall. As they watch the shadows projected on the wall from different objects passing in front of a fire behind them, they believed that the shadows were reality. When someone from the cave gets out to tell the truth about the world, he or she is immediately accused. A new idea brings a huge discomfort to the cave. It burns, but as Plato wrote “it is real.”

With the theme “Step Out,” we invite you to explore the journey from the ‘cave’ and recall the moments of your personal changes. We encourage you to make the intentional decision of stepping out and willing to seek discomfort together with us. Step Out is about embracing unlimited, but also not limiting oneself. It is about facing the unknown, but also looking in the past. Our theme allows the room for ambiguity and exploration of different lenses, different perspectives, and different voices. We are dare to know. Are you with us?
