Craving a way to catalyze change on your campus? Our Two Day Summit provides campuses with an opportunity to engage in BOTH a sustained conversation with student leaders about issues of campus climate AND a campus-wide conversation that illuminates selected climate issues, inviting the campus community to strategize short and long-term solutions to addressing bias and oppression.
The Summit Model is unique. On day one, a select group of up to 40 student leaders, representing a range of experiences and perspectives will explore the role of social-identity, bias, and power/privilege for themselves and in their interpersonal relationships. Equipped with this new-found knowledge, we’ll work together to identify the most relevant campus climate issues and develop scenes that portray them in real-life.
Utilizing Theatre of the Oppressed’s Forum Theatre techniques, these scenes will be workshopped by the entire campus at a full-community event on Day 2. There, the campus can acknowledge the reality of these issues, explore their causes, and take ownership of the solutions. This Summit format provides a facilitated environment that allows for a variety of perspectives to be voiced in a productive and non-judgemental atmosphere. The Community Summit program can lead to lasting change! Be a part of the movement and leave a legacy.
