Futuristic Re-imagining: Building Capacity for Self and Community Care

How do you imagine your best self and ideal community? What would that look like, feel like, be like? This workshop explores these questions by offering strategies for self and community care through arts-based practices. Participants use reflective writing techniques to unpack their lived experiences, followed by an activities that explore the genre of futurism as a tool to re-imaging a more ethical, inclusive, and beautiful co-existence. Activities and discussions in this workshop will lead up to the process of creating and performing a collaborative team piece of spoken word poetry that speaks to our ideal futures.
