Collective Leadership Lab Workshop Series
About the Collective Leadership Lab Workshops:
This is the first of four expert-led one-day workshops that Professor Sonia Ospina has organized during the Fall of 2017. Trainers from social change organizations will showcase participatory tools and techniques to support change efforts and offer experiential learning opportunities to practice the leadership capabilities required to implement them.
The workshops are free and registration will be first come, first served (students may sign up for as few or as many workshops as they are able to attend). Details for additional sessions will be announced soon.
The Entering, Exiting & Building Community Workshop, led by Urban Bush Women will provide a roadmap for community engagement and partnership development through arts, performance, and storytelling. Art will be used as a lab for learning how to work across groups for a greater good and understanding. The workshop will provide a unique opportunity to leverage body movement as a catalyst for social change and as a method of communicating that prioritizes equity among multiple perspectives, including analyzing racism and its manifestations in group dynamics.
Workshop Lead Organization:
Urban Bush Women (UBW) has been at the forefront of activating the intersections of professional & community art-making, civic engagement, leadership, and group dynamics for over two decades. We facilitate multiple workshop possibilities for a variety of different groups and contexts-from dance studio to board retreat-using a unique blend of dialogue and movement. Urban Bush Women facilitators tailor each experience to suit the goals of participants, gathered through a relationship-building process prior to the workshop(s); every UBW offering is anchored by our mission statement and these values.
