Empowerment Through Verse
This vital program is packed with entertainment, skills, resources, and action. It begins with poetry performance by Christina Irene; her bold poetry unmasks gender violence and sexual assault and activates courage.
The performance shifts to storytelling and group participation with a focus on creating personal resource booklets. These takeaway pieces will arm attendees in the realms of…
- Sexual harassment and assault
- Gender/domestic violence
- Resiliency and confidence
…and will incorporate information about resources available on campus.
Next is an activity borrowed from Christina’s background in theatre and stand-up comedy. This fun segment will fortify the previous segment’s teaching and add empowering communication skills—how to be heard.
Finally, attendees who are now emboldened by new tricks of courage and theatrics will perform their own poetry on the themes of gender violence or overcoming adversity.
