"Slow Dancing with the Enemy"
March 11, 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Hemingway Hall 215
In this interactive workshop, Peterson Toscano blends storytelling, small and large group activities, and hands-on instruction designed to explore effective strategies for engaging oneâ€™s perceived or actual opponent. Whether the topic be LGBTQ issues, Climate Change, or conflicts within a community or group, this workshop will help humanize The Other and aid in developing practical and effective strategies for deescalating violence and opening up dialogue.
Peterson Toscano, the inaugural Climate Change Communication and Inclusion resident scholar, is the host of "Citizen's Climate Radio" and "Climate Stew". Peterson takes a disarming approach to the serious worlds of gender, religion, and privilege in the climate change movement through one-person comedies and lively performance-lectures.
