Questions marked with a * are required
When someone says “we need to talk”, it’s a signal that the conversation is important, likely serious. This potent phrase can conjure many possibilities in the listener’s mind - both positive and negative. 


Reflecting on the 2020s thus far, we invite you to use the text submission box below to tell others what is on your heart or mind. Tell us what follows when you imagine saying “we need to talk” to anyone or everyone. Your submission will be included in a visual and auditory design exhibition held in March and April 2021 at James Madison University’s Duke Hall Gallery. (Limit 250 characters or about 80 words - you may choose to remain anonymous):
