Co-Lead Lab Pilot: Entering, Exiting, & Building Community Workshop & Panel

9:00am - 5:00pm
February 17, 2017
9:00am - 5:00pm

Attention Wagner students from all degree programs: four expert led one-day workshops will be offered during the Spring 2017 semester. 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. Interested?

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 dance 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. The second half of the day will consist of a panel led by Arts and Democracy featuring activist leaders from the field. The panel will address the multiple ways that arts, culture, and grassroots media can advance social justice by engaging stories and deconstructing and shifting narratives, while envisioning new ones. We will engage diverse examples to understand the power of stories to engage individuals and communities, advance activism, and shape policy.

Additional workshops exploring different leadership themes will be held on 3/24, 4/7, and 4/28.
