Storytelling is a powerful tool for activism. It communicates complex ideas, shapes narratives, and builds solidarity in a group. The diversity of storytelling makes it applicable for everything from one-on-one communication to large scale media messaging. It’s a tool that has long been used to share experiences, find common ground, and even change minds. 

This workshop will explore the elements of a story, delve into how how storytelling works, and allow you to discover ways of turning your own experiences into a persuasive narrative for change. We'll also discuss the practical applications of storytelling; whether for PR/marketing, group cohesion, and shaping political narratives. This will be a participatory workshop so bring something to write with and be ready to share!

Most of all, this workshop aims to be a fun and collaborative experience where you can explore sharing your own story. 

$20 suggested donation.

Come early for something to eat and/or a glass of wine at the Rose Wine Bar. The workshop will be in the adjacent event room beginning at 7pm.
