Fearless Families, a workshop for allies and little allies-in-the-making
Youth & Teen
At the Alliance Theatre, we are in the practice of building a community of allies using the tools of theater.
Using play as tool for learning, this workshop utilizes our voice, body, and imagination to dig deeper into the difficult conversation of race and injustice in a way that is accessible to youth, the young at heart, and their caregivers!
In our time together, we will use theater-based games to frame the concepts of diversity, fairness, and advocacy to equip families with the tools to have conversations that raise awareness to our biases while we rehearse action that contributes to an intersectional and antiracist lifestyle.
This workshop is designed for ages 6-12.
Duration 1 hour
