Creator Of PostSecret Reflects On His 10+ Year Project
Over ten years ago, Frank Warren was a small business owner living in Maryland. He wanted to find a way to connect strangers with one another through an art project. The rules were simple. On a postcard people anonymously mailed him a secret they’ve never shared before—and they still do. It’s become a huge success known as PostSecret.
Along with his blog postsecret.com where the secrets are posted weekly, Warren launched PostSecret The Show where the secrets are acted out in a theater setting. The world premiere was in Charlotte about 2 years ago and it returns this weekend at the Booth Playhouse at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Warren spoke with WFAE’s Sarah Delia.
