Since returning from Kabul last month I’ve jumped back into NYC life with both feet! Now I find my schedule full of speaking events and workshops from February through March! If you will be in NYC on any of these dates, please come to one or more of these events. I’d love to see you. And as always, please forward this to anyone who you think would be interested.
Spring is coming, and with it I am waking up and reaching out to you . I hope to see you at one of these events! I have 3 events in March. Two are discussions about art and art practices as important parts of social movement work, and the other is a workshop on Theatre of the Oppressed techniques.
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the conversation on Afghanistan this past Sunday. For folks who couldn’t be there I spoke about the power of images (both negative and positive) to shape reality. We interrupted the negative monologue on Afghanistan and moved closer to other human beings through seeing the artists’ faces and hearing their stories. The audience created new images of solidarity and love to send overseas. HERE IS THE VIDEO OF THOSE GREETINGS!!!
On Sunday, October 24th, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM I’ll be giving a special presentation about my work in Afghanistan and my plans for the future. Come hear about the inspiring artists who are using theater for civic engagement and social change. Listen to the good news that isn’t shown on TV.
