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.
