COMPASSIONATE COMMUNICATION & SOCIAL CHANGE
PRESENTED BY: Leif Stringer Coaching & Communication Training
DATE/TIME: Thursday, February 8 10:00-11:15AM
LOCATION: The Midnight

We can only build our community and world when we can communicate and truly listen to each other. Learn how to do that better with licensed therapist & communication specialist, Leif Stringer.

HOW TO CREATE SAFER SPACES IN YOUR COMMUNITY
PRESENTED BY: Shawna Potter of War On Women
DATE/TIME: Friday, February 9 12:30-2:00PM
LOCATION: The Bull

With hate crimes and harassment on the rise, knowing how to be a good ally to your fellow punks is more important than ever. “No Sexism, No Racism, & No Homophobia Allowed” is a great idea, but how do you implement it in real life? And what is it missing? This workshop should help people recognize some of the privileges they walk around with, as well as provide some skills on how to use it for good. You’ll leave with concrete methods to be a better ally for folks that experience all kinds of discrimination in your local scene. Whether you play in a band, book shows, take photos, or just wanna mosh – you have the power to create a safer scene.

HOW TO USE THE ARTS TO INSPIRE ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE
DATE/TIME: Friday, February 9 9:45-11:00AM

THE OTHER: DE-OTHERING THROUGH ART
DATE/TIME: Friday, February 9 2:00-3:30PM
LOCATION: The Bull

So much of the rhetoric we hear on the news, in politics, and in our daily lives is based around fear, and specifically fear of “the other.” It is fairly easy to believe false statements about people whose stories we haven’t heard. Art is one of the most powerful ways that we can “de-other” people. This panel will be exploring how we can use art to break down stigmas and stereotypes using art.

Panelists:
Chad Moses, To Write Love On Her Arms.
Talia Raymond, Minister, United Church of Gainesville; Professional Dancer
Mallory O’Conner, Author
Moderator: Nicole Harris, Teacher, GHS; Canes On Da Mic Poetry Club - GHS


ALLYSHIP
DATE/TIME: Friday, February 9 3:30-5:00PM
LOCATION: The Bull

The word “ally” is used all the time in social movements but many people actually have a hard time defining what being an ally looks like. If you want to learn how to be the best ally you can be or have ever had questions that you weren’t sure how or who to ask, this panel is for you.

Panelists:
Shawna Potter, War On Women
LB Hannahs, Student Affairs, University of Florida
Will Atkins, Director, UF Multicultural & Diversity Affairs
Moderator: Dr. Jaron Jones, Co-Founder, Self Narrate
