Risk to Change: Advance your Changemaking Skills

December 7, 2016 @ 11:00 am to 4:30 pm

To change the world, we need to see ourselves as agents of change and to engage in radical methods of engagement in communicating with one another. Image Theatre and storytelling are radical approaches that encourage participants to step outside of their comfort zone, use their body expressively, and rehearse best practices for positive change. In a safe workshop environment, you will be able to test the risk-taking process of transformation and learn how to integrate it into you practice.

Is this workshop for you?
Yes, if you:
• are a facilitator, educator, peacemaker, community-based artist, activist or community organizer passionate about social and environmental justice.
• work with others on affecting positive change.
• have been experiencing a gap between your vision and your actions.
• desire to transform your work so that it advances the change you envision.

What to expect?
• Dynamic and physically engaging experiential activities
• Interacting with other participants in break-out groups
• Challenging assumptions and biases in communication with others
• Critically reflecting on our paths
• Practicing changemaking skills
• Role-playing effective ways of communication, confronting the difficult, and rather-to-be-avoided situations.
• Sharing and listening to experiences involving transformation and risk
