About the event
At the core of all SPEAK* programs is our unique combination of circle work and prompt-based arts activities. Facilitators give participants self-exploratory prompts to work on throughout the program day, in mediums including writing, movement, visual art, music, or any combination of those. Each SPEAK* program culminates in a public performance of this original autobiographical storytelling, created by the group. After a week of creating, participants and facilitators sort through all created content to piece together a cohesive theater piece of self expression and empowerment; this allows participants to take the stage and gain confidence in their voice at a whole new level.
