Make It Fresh: Creative Storytelling Workshop Series: Spring 2014
March 18 – May 6, 2014
Tuesday nights in Downtown Oakland
Applications due February 7th
After an incredibly successful fall run, we’re back for another round of workshops to Make it Fresh! Led by acclaimed writer and creative activist Josh Healey (Movement Generation’s new Culture Shift Fellow), Make it Fresh is geared towards community activists, artists, and environmental justice leaders in the urban Bay Area. Participants will explore the relationship between their environment and their community, looking at issues of race, place, personal histories, and collective struggles — all
in a fun, supportive atmosphere. Combining spoken word, creative writing, and oral storytelling, all participants will create one original story or artistic piece, which they will have the opportunity to perform at a final community celebration.
More than just a writing workshop, Make it Fresh is for activists looking for new ways to engage their community and push their campaigns forward. Creative storytelling is a powerful tool for leadership development, political education, and building unity across cultures and generations. Whether you’re a closet writer just waiting to pick up the pen or a long-time activist searching for an exciting new tool to engage your members, Make it Fresh is made for you.
Interested participants for Make it Fresh should fill out the application.
Applications are due Friday, February 7.
Note: organizations can submit a max of 3 applications for their members/staff.
