Breaking Conventions: Examining Our Streets, Culture, and Stories

February 7, 2022 at 5:30pm7:30pm EST

Community Folk Art Center

Syracuse Stage welcomes Juhanna Rogers–a playwright, director, and activist, and vice president of racial equity and social impact at CenterState CEO– to lead this creative hand-on workshop, the third in a series of four.

We take a look into urban spaces and the way of life as a manner to tell new stories that focus on geographic identity and how that identity is leveraged in underrepresented and under-resourced communities. In conversation moderated by Joann Yarrow, Rogers shares the power of placed-based storytelling in urban communities activating systemic empathy and accountability.

What are ways to ensure voices don’t get lost? How can our stories redefine current models of policy and community engagement?

Registration info available here.

This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Conventions.”
