Using Body Wisdom to Cultivate Just Communities

September 22, 2019 at 1:30pm3:30pm

Sims Hall, 123

The Body Wisdom tools and practices 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 Jennifer Denning and Carolyn 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. Time has shown us that when we come together as whole bodies, minds, hearts and spirits, just communities can be cultivated and built.
