Kevin Hansen, website founder and author of the bestselling Secret Regrets book series, will share the shocking things we regret, why we regret and how we can ultimately learn to let go of the regrets that might be holding us back in life. Presentation attendees will even have a chance to anonymously share their own secret regrets – and hear the secret regrets of others who attend. Hansen and his Secret Regrets project have been featured on The Dr. Phil Show, international documentaries, as well as media outlets and websites worldwide including Cosmopolitan, CNN and Psychology Today. You can read Hansen’s featured articles about regrets on The Huffington Post. His bestselling book, Secret Regrets Volume 1: What if you had a Second Chance? features hundreds of the most shocking yet heartfelt regrets that we all can relate to, and walks people through the true healing that comes from revealing.

"Moving Words" is a collaboration between youth in the Waterloo Writing Project, Shuaib Meacham's hip-hop literacy group, The Truth and UNI art students. The project encourages all participants to reflect on the importance of community and citizenship while also acknowledging and celebrating the similarities and differences between each of our experiences through creative lenses. Waterloo Writing Project students will use ideas generated through shared journal exercises between all students as inspiration to write creative written works that will be passed on to 3D Concepts students who will, through the support of the UNI Digital Media Hub, create short, stop-motion films based on the writers' works. The Truth musicians will then use the written works and the films to create a soundtrack that will be layered on to each film. This semester-long collaboration will culminate in a public movie premiere (complete with a red carpet!) at the Waterloo Center for the Arts where the community is invited to celebrate alongside these writers, musicians and artists and see the films they created together projected on the "big screen". A panel discussion with all of the artists will follow the screening.
