Stories for Social Change

4:30 pm - 6:30 pm - Valley Performaning Arts Center, Lecture Auditorium Room 181

The Power of Stories for Social Change

The storytelling of everyday people can serve as a living record of the human experience.  By creating oral and visual histories we remove the filter of an accepted narrative about an individual's or a community's experience.

Stories surround us but what do they do beyond entertain us?  How do stories bring about social change?  Explore the use of stories in the classroom and in the community and bring the results to a day of "stories for social change" in public education.

Panelist: 

Dr. Stacy Holman Jones - Storytelling in Performance

Dr. Marcella De Veaux - Storytelling in the Classroom

Dr. Theresa White - Storytelling in Documentary Film

The panel will be moderated by Nate Thomas.

This event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2013 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the VPAC Lecture Auditorium, Room 181.

Image for Diversity DayDiversity Day

8:30 am - 3:30 pm - Northridge Center

Announcing the Department of Social Work's 4th Annual DIVERSITY DAY!

Hosted by the Department of Social Work featuring keynote speaker:  Tchicaya Missamou

Born into the Congolese wilderness, Tchicaya Missamou became a child solder at age 11.  As a horrific civil war loomed across his country, Missamou began using his militia connections to ferry jewels, cash, computers, and white diplomats out of the country.  By 17, he was rich.  By 18, he was a hunted man, his house destroyed, his family brutalized in front of him by his own militia.  By 19, he'd left behind everything he'd ever known, escaping to Europe and, eventually to America.  Incredibly, that was only the start of his journey.

Social Work's Fourth Annual Diversity Day will focus on the resilience of trauma survivors and provide education on evidence based trauma-informed interventions and assessment utilizing intersectionality and strengh-based perspectives.
