Storytelling is one of the most rigorous tools we have to fight oppression and social injustice. This workshop provides accessible creative strategies to individuals interested in pairing activism with their specific practice via storytelling. In partner and individual exercises, we will engage in a series of written and performative fast-paced content generative prompts. You’ll learn how to create a dynamic physical world out of nothing and play multiple characters, all the while using YOUR unique strengths and truths to engage your audience towards a shared goal. Participants will need: something to write with, something to take notes with, a water-bottle, and comfortable clothing.
