This in-school workshop series is a container for interactive dialogue about masculinity and society, power and control, myths and legends, stigmas, consent, body image, self-respect, altruism, and human beings’ immense potential for growth and understanding.
At the Heartisan Foundation, we are committed to making waves, questioning the status quo, and with the utmost care, cultivating a reality we each want to be a part of. Each workshop will be videoed as part of a larger documentary film to ignite similar conversations outside of the classroom.
Each day will consist of a short reflective journaling session, followed by an interactive dialogue on a select topic.
Day 1: Masculinity and Society – How are social norms created? Are we puppets or do we choose our behaviors?
Day 2: Power and Control – Can we be powerful without overpowering someone else? What does silence accomplish?
Day 3: Myths and Legends – Who are the real heroes? What kind of person do you want to become? Do you have the tools and support to accomplish your goals?
Day 4: Rehearsals - Preparing for Performance
Day 5: Showcase - Video Performance and Class Pledge
“It’s not that we are ever to be completely secure. More so, that we are to become comfortable being insecure.”
