This session invites participants to explore and express their voice through collage, and/or poetry. Using these devices, we will explore the idea of voice: as self-expression, its role in insightful dialogue, in advocacy, and in the marketplace of ideas, and in making connections. We will dive into a structured dialogue to discover the difference between “having one’s say” and having a voice in a way that constructs understanding, creates connections and insight.

Participants are encouraged to bring their cell phone, tablet, iPad and headphones to the session.

Three Key Takeaways:
Participants will:
  • Explore the idea authentic voice and one’s responsibility regarding it
  • Practice the role of generous and authentic listening as an accompaniment to voice
  • Reflect and practice how arts can and have been/are used as a platform for diverse voices
