Experience the transformational power of expressive arts and body-based practices applied to inclusive leadership and solidarity. Through movement, drawing, singing, writing and reflection, explore how identity, privilege and power influence our leadership and working relationships. Gain awareness of your strengths and challenges as we create together and apply new leadership skills and competencies. This program provides participants with the opportunity to practice solidarity in the group and then take these skills back to their communities. No prior experience with the arts is necessary as we draw upon everyone’s innate creativity. Become a more creative, embodied leader and deepen relationships with people from different cultural and social backgrounds so that we can truly lead together to create the change we want to see in the world. This program is for leaders, social justice change agents, union members, activists, artists, creatives, and those who want to be in deeper relationship with themselves and others.
