Using Body Wisdom to Cultivate Just Communities

September 21 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

This free workshop is sponsored and funded by Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel with guest artists Jennifer Denning and Carolyn Renee from InterPlay Atlanta. Session will be held in room 100a of The Nancy Cantor Warehouse in downtown Syracuse. Free parking is available.

The tools of InterPlay provide artful ways to help people share personal stories, find courage, witness, affirm and deepen their awareness and motivation to shift implicit bias, structural racism and racially-charged dynamics. There is a physicality to the emotions that get triggered on all sides by racism, by interactions that are racially-charged and by forums on race issues. InterPlay’s expressive art-based tools will offer participants an effective container to transform and release difficult emotions. InterPlay Atlanta leaders Denning and Renee bring years of experience using InterPlay and other body-arts modalities to offer this in-the-moment, interactive workshop for community connection and healing.

Co-sponsors are SU’s Contemplative collaborative, Department of Women and Gender Studies, and Department of Communication and Cultural Rhetoric.
