BSC Builds: Action Theatre for Public Policy Challenges and Civic Engagement Photo

Policymakers and citizens are struggling with big structural and complex problems such as climate change, cultural, economic, and social inequality and the education gap between represented and underrepresented communities.

In this workshop you will learn how to identify systemic challenges starting with your personal experience. Then in a group you will act and perform your challenge in a process of co-creation process with open-ended interpretations toward possible outcomes. You will learn how to understand performative behavior and decision-making for public policy challenges embodied by the problems and find outer creative expressions of co-production. Agency, Responsibility, and Civic Engagement will be the design principles to guide you in the experiential learning by doing through the body and the mind, toward a transformation.

Come ready to engage and dress comfortably.
