Resist - Protect - Create!

Who: Calling all Change Agents! Whether you are a veteran activist or recently mobilized member of Indivisible - We want you to join us on beautiful Vashon Island as we learn together, create art and props, build community, and deepen our activism.  
What: Backbone Campaign presents a series of trainings; each workshop will focus on one of the five disciplines, or Sectors of Agency in our Theory of Change:
  • Artful Activism, creative campaign design and props to make the invisible visible, bringing light to cause;
  • Community Organizing, non-transactional inquiry and engagement, building leadership and community power;
  • Cultural Work for anti-oppression & sense of place;
  • Storytelling and Media Making for reflecting and projecting our stories; and
  • Solutionary Strategies for a Just Transition, building and proving that another world is possible. 
Where: Trainings will happen at the Hostel Space on Vashon Island, 12119 SW Cove Rd, Vashon, WA 98070
(Exception: the April 22 Community Organizing Training will happen at a different Vashon Island location.)
