Hip-hop activists Climbing PoeTree offering student workshop Feb. 11

Creativity is the antidote to destruction! Performance activists and cultural workers Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman of Climbing PoeTree use art as a tool for catalyzing action, cross-pollinating solutions and getting at the root of the unnatural disasters we’ve inherited. 

In this interactive workshop that integrates performance and storytelling, Garcia and Penniman will share models of how creative interventions can be used to strengthen our movements for social and climate justice. Participants will interact with and contribute to a tapestry of thousands of hand-written stories, exercise the visionary muscle of the imagination and unleash collaborative power to build bridges of empathy across the walls that try to divide us.

Offered for CU Boulder students only. Cost is $25; lunch included. Reduced rates and scholarships available. Register by Feb. 8.

Sponsored by CU Environmental Center and CU Cultural Unity and Engagement Center.
