Arts and culture can be a driving force for change within our communities. During this session, learn how Kulture Kids has created performances and workshops around topics such as gun violence, bullying, sustainable mobility, clean water, vibrant green space, civility, diversity and more, by listening and creating customized programs requested by schools and community groups. The power of listening and the power of words can activate change.

People, not Mascots
Stereotypes categorize individuals or groups according to an oversimplified standardized image or idea. This session will explore the use of an ethnic race as a mascot leading to stereotypes accepted as truth.

Book or Cover
Robin Pease lets you put her in a box as a means to examine stereotypes and discover that “you can’t tell a book by its cover”. If you have knowledge, let it show in your behavior and find it is easier to understand, accept, have empathy, be comfortable and inclusive with others who have differences. This session will explore 12 strategies to start and strengthen human relationships and encourage participants to find diversity right in their own backyard.

Making Connections & Sharing ideas through Stories
Stories are the way wisdom gets passed along and a powerful tool that can put ideas into the world. Stories remind us of what we know, what we’ve forgotten and what is possible. Whether at home or at work, your story needs to be told to illustrate the importance of your experience. Discover tips, tricks and techniques to embrace your inner storyteller. Then use these skills to inspire others by sharing your personal story.
