Protest Poetry: Art-Making & Activism in Online Spaces

Our students are a part of one of the most active and outspoken generations of our time, but many of them are unable to participate in protests on the street. As educators, it is important that we empower our students to speak out and make their voices heard. One way we can help our students participate in protests without endangering them is through their art-making. In this experiential workshop led by Community-Word Project Teaching Artists Katie Rainey and Jay Howard, participants will explore activism through creative writing and how they can translate that work to their classrooms and empower their students to take action.
