The Power of Storytelling: Building Empathy & Bridging Differences

Westport Friends Meeting will host a workshop: 

The Power of Storytelling: Building Empathy & Bridging Differences

Individually we hold many complex and diverse experiences and identities (i.e. race, class, age, gender, sexuality, etc.). These experiences and identities help to shape how we view the world as well as how we interact within it.

In this workshop, led by facilitator Olivia Worden, we will consider and assess the various social identities that we hold and how our own experiences of privilege and marginalization impact our ability to communicate, advocate, and listen across differences. Through interactive exercises, participants will learn how to utilize their own stories as a tool for navigating conflict and building empathy.

Whether you are new to social justice work or a longtime advocate and ally, this workshop will provide you an opportunity to learn more about yourself, your community, and the ways in which you can create change.

Please bring a bag lunch; beverages will be provided.  The workshop is free, but registration is required by contacting Gretchen Baker-Smith below.

All are welcome.

When: Sunday, September 10, 2017.  11:30-1:30

Where: Macomber Friends Community House
                938 Main Road, Westport, MA 02790
