Keynote Addresses and Plenary Sessions
Inside Out is an ambitious address that analyzes the nature of abuse from multiple perspectives. Often generating the liveliest discussions, it is a no-holds-barred approach to addressing the issues that go unaddressed by most institutions. Chris and Ophelia apply the lessons learned from personally handpicked films and tailor dialogue to the issues affecting the student community. They talk about the experience, the myths, the madness, and turn it Inside Out.
