Waking Up White course icon

This class is based on the book Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race, by Debbie Irving.

As artists we are often asked to collaborate with musicians from around the world. The best collaborations require deep listening and becoming aware of the unconcsious biases that we might carry.

We will explore and research our ability to play and stretch through our personal and societal discomfort by using InterPlay forms to tell our stories and move through discomfort, facing it with compassion and creativity.

This group is a closed group. We will carry out the course if we have mimimum of 6 people.

You are invited to join InterPlay leaders and Racial Justice Educators, Jennifer Denning, and Katie Hyman for Waking Up White.

Live music from Mairi Campbell.
