"It Takes A Village" Conference announces Keynote Speaker Composer Film-Maker Chris Brickler
Chris Brickler, director of the Emmy-nominated documentary on love and relationships, "How Will We Love?", will be in San Diego for one appearance only, to speak to parents and educators at the exciting new conference, "It Takes A Village".
By: It Takes A Village Conference
Conference Director, Heather Lampron, invited Chris to speak at the conference after viewing his moving documentary. "Chris is a young artist, exploring what it means to be human, to love, to create. He shines a light on the questions and fears, hopes and dreams of young people today. As parents and educators, we can learn from these young seekers. Our 2008 conference featured another exciting young speaker, Max Simon. We will continue to bring fresh, new, and thought-provoking speakers to our annual conference. This is a very exciting event for San Diego, and "It Takes A Village" is greatly honored to have Chris Brickler speak at our 2009 conference."
The conference theme is "Creating the Family of Our Dreams", and Chris is eager to share with attendees on this topic. Brickler notes, "The greatest gift I got from my grandparents was them showing me how they share their love for each other. I created this project to encourage people to have honest conversations that lead to better relationships. The content has already inspired thousands of people."
Chris Brickler will present a multimedia keynote talk with music and excerpts from the film to an intimate group of 300 at 3:30 PM at the University of San Diego's Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice. Preregistration required.
