Event description
This webinar is part of a series of online workshops led by staff and artists at Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP) in 2020.

About this Event

In this workshop, we will create an ongoing conversation about how art forms can be used to facilitate safe and brave spaces. In doing so, we will need to examine how these types of spaces are defined. We'll also think about how we can work to create and facilitate such spaces.
