Sci Fi and Direct Action Training with adrienne maree brown

April 11, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free with RSVP

Join Leeway on Saturday, April 11 for a direct action workshop led by writer, social justice facilitator, and co-editor of Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction from Social Justice Movements adrienne maree brown. During this training, participants will use familiar stories of other worlds (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Oz, Harry Potter, etc.) to design campaigns that parallel the world we are fighting for in the here and now. By the end of the session, regimes will be toppled, evil forces vanquished, and solid skills in direct action organizing developed.

Copies of Octavia’s Brood will be on sale and light snacks will be served. The venue is wheelchair accessible.

This workshop is presented in partnership with: AfroFuturist Affair, Bread & Roses Community Fund, Jewish Voice for Peace, Media Mobilizing Project, MetroPolarity, MythMedia: 21, Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations, and Training for Change.

An Octavia’s Brood Book Release event happens earlier on Friday April 8th at Wooden Shoe Books. More info on that here: https://www.facebook.com/events/833424306751725/
