Workshops for telling stories and pursuing social justice
If you are excited about the Story Lab for “Images from the Border” on June 13, you’ll want to check out some of these upcoming workshops.
Indy is becoming increasingly aware that to make social change, it’s vital to tell stories that are compelling and true. An excellent example will be the Story Lab encouraging participants to share their stories about the significance of borders. More are being held at the wonderful Flanner Community Writing Center.
Here are a few more.
This 2-part workshop creates a space for participants to flesh out and root their personal works in political education and transformation.
In part 2, participants will reflect on their political issue of choice and their personal connections to and motivations behind that issue through vent diagramming. Then, participants will work in small groups to collectively think through each other’s prompt responses and vent diagrams, and work together to outline the direction of each other’s pieces
What does it mean to be a strong woman? In this workshop led by writer, mother, and educator KC Chan-Brose, we will define what strength means to us based off the examples we see in our every day lives. We will read the writing of strong women and decide what we want the world to look like for our daughters. Then, we will discuss how we make that world.
We will write letters to our daughters, as well as re-write stories to model the themes that are lacking in children’s literature.
