Unpacking Systemic Racism: How Does it Live in You?


July 2nd Thursday from 16:00-17:30
3 days from now13–17°C Rain Showers
For many, especially those who are white and/or privileged, processing the enormity of systemic racism can feel overwhelming and paralyzing. In this session we will creatively process the ways that systemic racism lives within us and our complicity in it. We will allow ourselves to feel and digest this complexity with the support of somatic and creative arts. Move through and engage with this process in order to harness inspiration for action. This workshop will include writing, music, and movement/dance. Facilitators include Khari Wendell McClelland, Rebekka Goldsmith, and Laura June Albert.

Khari Wendell McClelland is an award-winning musician and sought-after facilitator who uses the arts and experiential activities for transformational learning. Rebekka Goldsmith is a professional singer, group facilitator and coach who believes that when we have full access to our voices, we unlock our creativity, awaken to our full capacity and catalyze deep and lasting change in our communities. Laura June Albert, is an educator, researcher, cultural organizer, and artist. Her research investigates the experiential body as a liberatory landscape for anticolonial and anticapitalist self-determination and liveness.
