Join us for this 2-part workshop exploring individual, societal and possible definitions of “justice”.

In the first session we will investigate recent news stories with “justice” featured in the headline. Participants will create pieces of Newspaper Theatre to reveal how the word is used in today’s media and society at large.

In the second session, we will work to re-imagine “justice." To start, we will use Image Theatre to sketch out our own pictures of a more just world. Once we establish a vision of the world we are striving for, we will explore new definitions of “justice” to discover which collective usages will best support the transition.
