PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP

Framing The Fight: Storytelling as Activism

Friday, October 21st 3:00pm

Sellus Wilder

Tell the story you want told!  Practiced storyteller / activist Sellus Wilder will help us learn to tell the story that we want told.  In this hands-on workshop, we'll discuss the value of distilling your efforts into a story that can generate free press, bring new stakeholders around to your perspective, and ultimately give a deeper meaning and momentum to your movement.  Participants in this workshop will collaborate to frame at least one narrative around a local or regional issue, while developing simple talking points to support the narrative. Turn your potential energy into kinetic!
