Movement-Building and the Arts: How Music, Poetry and Dance Inform, Inspire and Energize Social Movements for Change
September 12, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDTFree
Countless movements for social and political change over the years have relied on artists to lead the way, inspire activism, change the narrative, stimulate discussion, and offer hope. Join in this interactive workshop as Leti facilitates what is sure to be a lively discussion on the reasons why and the ways that artists are moved to be creative during difficult and politically-charged times. Together the group will share what music, dance, poetry, painting, or other art forms being created now are moving you. The discussion will also include talking about the art forms you are currently creating that are sustaining your activism. Bring ideas, questions, examples, and an open heart! All are welcome!
