We would like to announce a virtual process-based workshop series geared towards Black, Indigenous, and students of color (BIPOC) registered with DRES. The goal of this series is to provide an intentional space where students can process stress and share coping strategies related to current and historical socio-political events. We hope to draw upon the cultural practices of narrative and other arts-based storytelling to support community-based healing. The workshop series will consist of three 90 minute sessions. We will apply an intersectional lens to harness our collective resources and think creatively about alternative futures that promote resilience and social progress. We will meet 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. CST on April 12, 2021, April 19, 2021, and April 26, 2021. Students will need to be available for each of the three consecutive sessions.
The workshop will be facilitated by Nimot Ogunfemi and Briana Williams. For more information, students should contact Briana Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
