Presented by Josh Healey, poet, activist, and Bend the Arc artist-in-residence 2012

If politics is the art of what's possible, let's use art to expand those possibilities. This workshop is about re-definition and self-determination, breaking stereotypes and finding the power in your own voice. Join this interactive arts & activism workshop as we write, discuss, and share new creations -- and discover how to use our own stories to reshape the political narrative towards social justice and solidarity. Whether you're a closet writer just waiting to pick up a pen or a veteran activist searching for new tools to engage others, this workshop is for you.
