Roots Grow Together: Relationships In Today’s World

Workshop

Sunday, Sept. 9th, 2018

11am-2pm

 Description 

This experiential workshop will explore how various identities and technological advancements have influenced our perception of relationships of all forms (familial, romantic, platonic, etc). More specifically, we will consider the existence of various types of relationships through response art, the screening of two films – “Roots Grow Together” and “Street Echoes” – and a question and answer session.

We will have panelists who are comfortable discussing relational and systems perspective work on multiple levels – such as working with couples, working with individuals navigating a variety of relationships (work, friends, romantic, familial, etc), working with families, etc. We are hoping to have a wide array of identities covered in the panel to provide the largest spectrum of experiences possible

 Objectives 

Upon conclusion of the event, participants will be able to:

  1. Consider response art as a method for investigating personal factors that relate to the development and maintenance of relationships.

  2. Consider the role of relationships in our lives and society.

  3. Understand the influence of the current administration and its policies and their effects on our lives.
