Event description

Description

This interactive workshop begins to build the framework of a community engagement practice that is to be enacted and reflected on regularly. We ask practitioners to place themselves on a spectrum that identifies various societal privileges and distributions of power. This session includes a discussion of how practitioners might be perceived as outsiders in communities who have experienced a different social context related to power, privilege, and oppression. The goal is to establish a reference vocabulary for personal introspection while laying the foundation of an ongoing self-reflective practice. Participants are asked to to available for the entirety of workshop.
