This summer Tory Bullock instructed students at the Boston Arts Academy to participate in the cultural art experiment that has swept the nation over the last few years, PostSecret.

Created by founder Frank Warren, PostSecret is an ongoing community art project/experiment where people around the world mail in secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard and every Sunday Frank uploads a selection of scanned copies of the postcards he receives.

“It was very, very difficult to get kids to really participate in the beginning, though some did open up,” Bullock told the Boston Globe.

Every year college students attend one of the most interesting lectures across America.

PostSecret Live is a multi-media presentation by Frank Warren, the founder of the ongoing community art project/experiment where people around the world mail in secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard. The project is called PostSecret and every Sunday Frank uploads a selection of scanned copies of the postcards he receives to his home that he shares with his wife Jan, daughter Hailey and dog Shadow.

In the presentation, Frank speaks about the process of the experiment and the publication of his four PostSecret books. He also shows postcards that were banned from the New York Times #1 best-selling books, and invites people to the microphone to share a secret with the crowd. There are also inspirational and funny stories behind the secrets that are told.

Students may also meet Frank following the presentation for a book signing.
