Values Day – Call For Workshops and Save the Date

Each year, Stetson University takes a day away from classes to explore our commonly shared values.  This year, Values Day will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019.

The Values Planning Committee invites proposals for 75- or 150-minute workshops that promote the theme, “Activism Through The Arts.” The theme is meant for individuals to explore ways in which they can utilize art to move their audience to action around a social issue, with the ultimate goal of social change. Workshops should engage the Stetson community in a hands-on exploration in one of the following four tracks:

Activism Boot Camp
Workshops will explore a variety of activities essential to the practice of everyday activism. These sessions will emphasize skills training and provide the fundamentals necessary to kick-start activist practices in our daily lives.

Owning Our Narratives
Workshops will provide tools for reflecting on and refining our narratives, addressing themes, such as social responsibility, self-exploration and self-awareness, cross-cultural competencies, and/or the intersectionality of identities.

Coalition-Building
Workshops will offer strategies for organizing and motivating diverse groups of people with a common cause. Topics may range from grassroots movements to the art of leveraging corporate connections for social change.

Mind, Body, Spirit, and Activism
Workshops will focus on balancing our personal well-being with our commitment to others through activism. Sessions should provide techniques and practices for self-awareness, reflection, self-care and/or contemplation.
