Artful Justice

justice (767x511)Public witness can be more than some signs or a truckload of needed things; public witness can be a free meal and a show to all in need, a parade of knitted pink hats, a show about human trafficking held in an 18-wheeler, personalized graffiti art above the head of an unhomed person on Skid Row, or a fence filled with crosses honoring those killed in Central America.

Artfulness in our justice work helps us draw the circle of love ever wider. These workshops and consultations will help you think more creatively about how to answer the call of love.

Offerings

The Artful Congregation in the Public Square

It’s easy to get stuck doing the same things when it comes to our social justice work. Give your public witness a jump start by thinking creatively about art-full events and services. This two-hour workshop will get the creative juices flowing.

Welcoming Worship

Unitarian Universalists are called to draw the circle of welcome ever wider, knowing (as UUA president Susan Frederick-Gray has said) “No one is outside the circle of love.” But how welcoming is our worship to people of color? Together, we will examine the presumptions of sameness our very Protestant worship makes and how to decenter whiteness in the precious hour we spend together each week.
