The Seminar Experience

The Seminar program is about learning, experiencing, growing and engaging around issues that affect your community. Activities during a seminar include experiential exercises, small group discussions and opportunities to express what you've learned in various art forms.

Whether you are preparing a group for an upcoming seminar, just returning for a recent seminar or looking for ways to explore justice issues in your community, we want to make sure you have the tools to stay connected to the issues. The resources on this page can help you continue educating and engaging your group and the larger community.
