What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

By learning how to consciously craft and share powerful stories, we can challenge oppressive systems and invite people to imagine and embody collective liberation. If we shift our cultural stories that sustain oppressive systems– narratives of domination, extraction, inadequacy, separation and inevitability, to narratives of wholeness, interdependence, connection and power – we can create communities of belonging, rooted in care for each other and all of life.” – Life Escobar


Join acclaimed activist, speaker, and videographer Life Escobar for a virtual workshop about the power of storytelling in social change movements. Life will speak to their experience crafting and documenting stories in war zones, in places of political upheaval, and as part of their own journey of healing.

In this moment in time, the unifying power of stories is not to be underestimated. Gain skills for personal and professional storytelling through this online workshop. Hear from Life how to identify and convey stories that will lead to change as well as gain excellent storytelling skills.

Learn to share stories that will build a movement, foster empathy and compassion, transform understanding, and lead to true social change.

Build skills in:

  • Storytelling
  • communication
  • empathy-based stories
  • story arcs
  • movement building

This workshop is for you if you’re:
