Performances: Bring a live Black Stories Matter virtual performance to your community via Zoom. This option provides the excitement of seeing radically true storytelling in real-time and the opportunity for a lively post-show Q&A with the storytellers and workshop leaders. This can be a stand-alone or paired with a workshop experience. It is available for an all-inclusive audience.
Black Stories Matter: True Storytelling Workshops: Black Stories Matter provides Black-led virtual true storytelling workshops where Black folks can write about, share, and reflect upon their experiences without having to justify, explain, or defend the truth of their lived experiences. These workshops are all Black spaces. You can book one session, a series, or book a full ten-session workshop that will culminate in your own Black Stories Matter performance.
Creating Brave Spaces: Radically True Storytelling Workshops for Authenticity and Belonging: Dated Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs rarely do more than check off a box. Even if they’re well-intentioned, many DEI programs cause harm and result in leaving historically marginalized people feeling othered and excluded. Creating Brave Spaces utilizes the power of true storytelling to cultivate school and workspaces that foster and encourage brave communication, authenticity, and a true sense of belonging for everyone. These workshops include storytelling performances along with a series of exercises designed to help your team build trust, improve communication, develop an anti-oppression-based mindfulness practice, illuminate blind spots, and uncover unconscious bias. These workshops focus on our four social justice initiatives: racial justice, gender equity, LGBTQIA+ rights, and mental health awareness, or based on the specific wants and needs of your group.
