There is power in our stories. So how do we use story-based strategy and artwork to win campaigns and efforts in our city? How do we challenge and shift dominant narratives without our messaging being co-opted by those in power? How do we utilize those in power to push our issues to the forefront?

Join FTP Artists Collective members Ruby Pinto (Chicago Community Bond Fund), Danbee Kim (Grassroots Collaborative), and Melisa Stephen (No Cop Academy) for a conversation and workshop on utilizing art and storytelling to shift narratives and build power in our communities. Moderated by Monica Trinidad, current artist-in-residence at Build Coffee.

Friday, March 29th from 6:30-8:30pm
@ Build Coffee, located at:
6100 South Blackstone Ave
Chicago, IL 60637

Accessibility: Entrance to build coffee is wheelchair accessible/curb level. Unfortunately the bathroom is too narrow for most wheelchairs, but a Build Coffee staff person can let anyone who needs assistance into the Experimental Station bathrooms, which are accessible.
