Event description

Description

The Diversity Task Group of Arlington’s Vision 2020 and True Story Theater invite YOU to (one or two)

Bystander intervention workshops

Tuesday, January 24th, 7-9pm
Wednesday, February 22nd, 7-9pm

At the Robbins Library, community room, 700 Mass Ave. Arlington, MA

What do you do when you witness someone mistreated (at work, school, on a bus)?
In this workshop:

  • Explore or share incidents, feelings, actions, and thoughts on being an ally.

  • See True Story Theater embody common experiences.

  • Gain a broader perspective on the pivotal role of a bystander to shift a situation.

  • Explore ideas as a group about effective ways to intervene

Free event. (Donations to support the ongoing bystander awareness work are welcome).

You can attend either or both workshops. We recommend coming to both if you are free, to practice skills and increase your options for intervening.

ARLINGTON’S LIVING BROCHURE • TELLING OUR STORIES • BUILDING COMMUNITY

Arlington’s Living Brochure is a two-year project to create a more inclusive town through theater and the arts. Check out TrueStoryTheater.org for the schedule of performances and workshops offered every month.

Arlington thrives because of its volunteers.
Arlington's Living Brochure makes visible the work of the town's volunteer committees, including Vision 2020, the Human Rights Commission, Sustainable Arlington, the Commission on Disability, the Diversity Task Group, Arlington Public Art, and others.

This project is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, with support from the Robbins Library, ACMi, and local artist Nilou Moochhala.
