The Center for Latin American Studies, in partnership with the Department of Spanish & Portuguese, the K'acha Willaykuna: Andean & Amazonia Indigenous Arts & Humanities Collaboration, and the Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme, is excited to host a series of virtual workshops on Storytelling for Social Change, presented by the Pachaysana Institute. The series will take place on Fridays, starting January 22 and ending on April 23.
If we want to change the world, we must first change our stories. Stories are how we make sense of who we are and who want to become, and in times of injustice, they are used for both manipulation and liberation. This workshop/webinar explores how stories have shaped our world, as well as how we can use them to identify and transform conflicts. It helps us see the power of stories in our day to day lives, as well as the dominant narratives and myths that define our societies. Our goal is to imagine new narratives and storytelling methods that take us toward re-storying our world: the narrative act for collective healing and liberation.
