Do you want to act to stop destruction and make the world a more beautiful place? Do you want creativity to infuse your resistance with mischief, fun and joy?
This series of three creative workshops are led by award winning human rights activist, performer, presenter, and writer Dan Glass. We encourage participants to sign up for every workshop in the series.
In these collaborative and informal sessions, you will learn strategies for using art as resistance, and find ideas for creative disruption. Expect to come away with thinking-outside-the-box tools for initiating positive social change.
Drawing from examples where others have created change, Dan will encourage you to explore how collaborative leadership involves creating strong, connected and self-organised communities.
