Storytelling and Activism: What’s Your Truth?

Led by Sara Porkalob
Recommended for ages 15+

Storytelling is one of the most rigorous tools we have to fight oppression and social injustice. This workshop provides accessible creative strategies for individuals interested in pairing activism with their specific practice via storytelling. In partner and individual exercises, we will engage in a series of fast-paced written and performative 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.


Dragon Eggs and Magic Slime

Led by Dani Patrick
For kids in grades 3 – 5

In this workshop, participants will create colorful magic dragon eggs, covered in jewels, stones, and other magical items, as well as kid-safe magic glitter slime. We’ll also talk about our own “magical powers”—what makes us, our families, and our cultures special.
