    Poetry on Buses is hosting a series of bilingual community poetry workshops in King County starting May 1 and running through September. Come on out to one of these free workshops and explore poetic traditions as well as your local and global connection to water. You will also learn how our water is cared for by Seattle Public Utilities and King County’s Wastewater Treatment and Water and Land Resources divisions.

    The workshops have been tailored to the needs of Seattle and King County’s diverse communities with specific workshops focused on the Chinese, Ethiopian, Punjabi, Spanish-speaking, African American and Tlingit communities. Each workshop has been planned in collaboration with the Poetry on Buses poet planner, community liaisons, and community poets—so they are sure to be meaningful and responsive to the communities they serve. Everyone is welcome to attend!

  • Workshop: Decolonize our Activism
    10:00 am-4:00 pm
    21/08/2016-23/08/2016

    Historically, environmentalism has focused on the experiences and goals of higher-income, white males. Today environmentalists that are looking to “diversify” the movement must put aside their own agenda, and seek to listen, learn from, and join the global movement of indigenous and communities of color.

    The objectives for these workshops include:
    *Educate non-Native allies how to work with Native Americans doing activism
    *Authentic alliance building that reflects indigenous-led organizing and strategies
    *Prepare participants for volunteer opportunities at Native community events
    *How to support Native activism rather than perpetuating colonial systems of oppression
    *Honor indigenous traditions without appropriating their cultures

    All are welcome to attend these life-changing workshops that incorporate traditional Native American teachings that are even more relevant and needed today. We will offer some suggestions on how to be a good ally and form partnerships with the traditional stewards of this land. This workshop briefly covers the longer workshops of History of Colonization, Healing Historical Trauma, Spiritual Activism, and The 7th Fire.
