Popular education is an educational approach in which participants analyze their own lived experiences as a way to critically question the status quo and take action to change systems of power. Popular education challenges dominant approaches to teaching by engaging all participants as co-learners and co-teachers, rather than passive recipients of knowledge.
Creating engaging learning and skill-building spaces is vital to all developing leadership and community power. In this, session participants will explore the fundamentals of popular education and how it can be used as a tool for organizing across multiple issues. Participants will examine the role of facilitation in creating dynamic interactive workshops while practicing facilitation skills and creating innovative agendas on relevant topics.
Offered on a sliding scale $10-$35. Individuals 23 and younger are free. Dinner provided.
