We are thrilled to announce the 6th and final Learning Lab series at Arts Commons, continuing our exploration of Art for Social Change. With the generous support of Calgary Arts Development, we invite you to join us for the upcoming Learning Lab titled Building Confidence to Tell Our Stories.

Our stories are powerful. It shapes the way we see ourselves in relation to the world around us. It also solidifies our sense of belonging with others. This experiential workshop blends discussion and practice to help participants reflect and share their lived experiences while creating a safe space for others through an equity lens. Participants will walk away with a renewed understanding of how to tell their stories with confidence, strengthen self-compassion, increase inclusion and reduce discrimination in everyday situations. 

The method used in this workshop is called guided autobiography, which is a unique way to be invited into the lives of others, to experience through the medium of their stories, the ties that bind us all — the challenges, wins, and hopes that constitute their lives, as well as our own. 

Hosted by Gayathri Shukla, a certified instructor, who will provide writing and discussion prompts. Please note, prior writing experience is not necessary, and you may share only what you are comfortable with within the group discussion.
