Confidence: A Show & Tell
April 7, 2022 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
Who says show and tell is just for kids? In Alma Cook’s monthly miniseries, we’ll discuss simple concepts in a collaborative way, using attendees’ own selections from arts and culture as our springboard. Don’t be afraid to bring your guitar, your dancing shoes, or your latest poem!
Alma Cook is a singer-songwriter, business owner, and Braver Angels cultural ambassador. With many hats come many interests, including faith, economics, art, and communal living—but above all, she loves to bring people together for food and fellowship.
This month’s topic: confidence! What would life look like if all your fears and insecurities were replaced with confidence? What’s stopping you from getting there right now? For all the emphasis our culture places on self-esteem and self-love, does it really make a difference?
The formula is simple: bring a song, book, poem, quote, movie clip, painting, or even an everyday object that represents the topic at hand. You’re welcome to bring/perform an original work or share something made by someone else. Alma will loosely make space for everyone to talk about why they selected their piece—but beyond that, there’s no agenda, and there’s certainly no one threatening to vote you off the island for doing it wrong.
I’m a Porsche with no brakes.”
See you there! If you can’t make this show and tell, be sure to join us next time on May 5th for a discussion on jealousy—that one could get juicy, right?!
How to Prepare
Think about what confidence means to you. Find a piece that captures what you believe confidence is (or distinctly isn’t), and be ready to say a few words about it—unless you’d prefer to just listen, which is fine too! Original works and performances are encouraged, but not required. This is a great space to test out your new material in a low-pressure setting.
