Artists throughout time have used their words to raise awareness by making people stop and reflect, to illuminate the truth of what is being presented, and identify the changes needing to be made.
You do not need to be a published playwright, poet or have experience in sharing a personal story, just a desire to dive deep and access your authentic advocate voice through your willingness to engage in your creative process.
This workshop utilizes creative activities, writing prompts and supportive feedback to help participants in develop pieces used to enlighten and evoke change.
Participants meet in person every month and have the option to engage in creative coaching between sessions.
