Description

The Connections Lab Workshop

The skill of framing

Building on the work of linguist and cognitive scientist George Lakoff, the workshop will reveal:

  • Why progressives and conservatives take the positions they do.

  • What we need to stop doing to be successful.

  • How to frame a message so it works!

You’ll never see political communication in the same way!

The bulk of the workshop applies our hands-on “Stop, Drop and Roll” exercises that teach you the skill of framing messages that tell people who we are, what we believe, and why our ideas work better for all Americans.

What you need to know:

1. The workshop location is a private residence with a large meeting space.

2. There will be light refreshments. You are welcome to bring your own favorite beverage and snack.

3. Tickets: Click the Green Bar above to select a ticket and reserve your place. Eventbrite adds a small fee. If you need a scholarship, contact the event organizer directly—contact information is below.

It is through the generosity of Dr. Anil Kumar that Indivisible MI District 11 and Friends are able to offer this workshop at a discounted tuition price. We are grateful for his sponsorship, encouragement and wisdom as we kick-off the Indivisible Awaken Program by learning about framing our messages.

Your presenters are Julie Ethan and George Greene.

Bring a notebook. Dress comfortably.

If at all possible, please complete the "Pre-Reading Assignment" by clicking the link. This allows us to shorten the introduction to the material so we can spend more time in practice.

If you're looking for some inspiration in the meantime, watch this 23 minute video of Tavis Smiley interviewing George Lakoff.
