What: This 5 week workshop series focuses on the topics of race and racism. They aim to create a safe space where participants can speak their own truth and start to do the important work of unlearning the systemic racism we’ve been taught our entire lives. The workshop hopes to offer participants healing from racial privilege and oppression, as well as some starting points for making structural and personal changes that can undo racism in ourselves, our communities and our world. Each 2-hour session will mix theatrical games and techniques with discussion, supplemented by take-home readings and practical assignments to be enacted in everyday life.
