Creating Your Family Gender Story

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will engage in creating a Family Gender Story. Ideas, Narrative and Actual making of art/books will be utilized, yet, the workshop is meant to generate the expansion to working on this with children/youth at home. Participants will learn how to craft a gender story and then how to incorporate their childs expression and experience into the activity. Issues of "how to talk with family, friends, institutions" around "family gender story" will also be addressed. Gender Affirmative and Family Acceptance practices will root the discussion/dydactic portions.
