Announcing a special edition workshop series for Fall 2018: Healing Justice as Building Cultural Resilience
These workshops, coordinated by SID faculty member Diana Copeland, will be held Tuesdays at the Cass Corridor Commons from 7pm-9pm beginning on October 16. All workshops are free and open to the public and will include a light dinner.

Cultural organizing places culture at the center of an organizing strategy. It can be done to unite people through the humanity of culture and the democracy of participation. This fall we will explore the ways in which healing justice; creativity and arts enhance cultural organizing through a series of unique workshops led by Detroiters that are at the forefront of this movement. This type of creative organizing empowers communities to come together in celebration of culture while developing valuable skills that challenge power and oppression.

Healing Justice is woven through each of the workshops. Dr. Page of the Kindred Healing Justice Collective (often attributed with coining the phrase) describes Healing Justice as identifying how we can holistically respond to and intervene on generational trauma and violence, and to bring collective practices that can impact and transform the consequences of oppression on our bodies, hearts and minds.”

RSVP is encouraged, but not required.

Transportation from Ann Arbor will be provided. If you need transportation, please let us know by emailing us at semesterindetroit@umich.edu.
