Training for Strategic Creative Action: A Weekend with Beautiful Trouble
Saturday, February 4 – Sunday, February 5, 2018
Exact times TBD (likely 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM each day)
SASKATOON, Station 20 West, 1120 20th Street W. | Facebook Event
DEADLINE TO REGISTER: MONDAY, JANUARY 29 (WED. JANUARY 24 for transportation support)
Over two-days of energetic and creative conversations, this training will take participants through an interactive exploration into what makes people power effective, with opportunities to apply it directly to your cause or campaign.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Beautiful Trouble trainings are a dynamic mix of hands-on group exercises, powerful presentations, strategic brainstorms, and other skill-building activities designed to empower and engage folks to be smarter, more creative, more resourced organizers.
Together, we’ll discuss core principles, tools and theories that have been used effectively around the world – such as Action Logic, Decision Dilemmas, and Points of Intervention. Then, we’ll put the “creative” in creative action by examining a host of outside-the-box tactics that anyone working to build a more equitable and just world needs in their toolbox!
Some of the topics covered will include:
- Exploring Creative Action Strategies & Tactics for Global Citizens
- Nonviolent Action: Street Smarts and Street Safety for Sharing your Message
Transportation & Accessibility
We will be organizing carpools for folks traveling to Saskatoon from out of town. In order to allow enough time to organize this, you must register no later than Wednesday, January 24, 2018 if you intend to make use of the carpooling service or are in need of a ride.
