How do we persist? How do we keep the fires of our life burning so that we cannot just survive, but also thrive? Does art have a place in activism? There are many ways we can resist struggles and demonstrate the ways we’ve been resilient. This workshop will focus on the value of art, poetry, and other forms of written expression in the human experience. Through the use of spoken word, essays, poetry, music and other art forms, individuals can express their opinions on a range of topics. We’ll do some writing prompts and everything will leave the workshop having created something.
