In 2022, MSW students identified the need to develop concrete skills on how to initiate and engage in difficult conversations around issues related to racism, classism, sexism, ageism, ableism and other DEI related topics with faculty and staff members at the School of Social Work and within their field placements.
To address this need, Assistant Professor Ashley E. Cureton, Field Faculty Rosalva Osorio, and student members of the PRAXIS Committee are partnering with Dr. Lisa Jo Epstein from the Just Act Institute for Theatre of the Oppressed to teach social work students and the broader social work community on how to facilitate social and liberatory change through the use of Forum Theatre, a form of interactive theater that empowers audience members to actively explore, critique, and transform the reality that they live in to "rehearse for revolution."
Join us for this Forum Theatre performance featuring MSW students from the School of Social Work. All faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend this exciting event!
Food will be served, and you are required to RSVP to this event. The performance is free of charge.
