With Beth Howard.

Our dominant culture gives people and institutions more or less power, privilege, and advantages based on identities, such as race, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, and more. This workshop engages participants in the fundamental concepts of oppression, power, and identity through journaling, reflection, and group discussion so that we can see the world in a justice-oriented framework and begin to practice anti-oppression in our everyday lives and our writing. For those who are curious and open to learning, this workshop will offer students a sharper lens for what we create and why, whose stories are being told, whose stories are silenced, and how applying an anti-oppression lens can make everything we do, including our art, more meaningful, impactful, and honest. Beth Howard lives in Lexington, and is a grassroots community organizer, writer, trainer, and coach.
