This engaging, interactive workshop is like a visit to an artistic and inspiring civic engagement coach. It is designed for people who want to build a personal road map in a safe, respectful space with some guidance and in connection with others. Through individual writing and reflection, compelling exercises, group discussion, and live and recorded music, we will cover: individual values, priorities and hopes; debunking the myths of a perfect solution and single charismatic leader; accepting, carrying and passing on a torch; letting one’s heart lead (not one’s ego); allowing for the messiness of collaboration; appreciating common threads as well as differences; and specific strategies and places to wage love in the civic arena. Step in, step up: we are the leaders we’ve been waiting for.
