About Weekend WorkshopsWeekend Workshops are a learning and creative space for all writers, poets, orators, dancers, vocalists, and creatives passionate about leadership development, performance, and social justice.

It convenes ARTIVISTS from across New York City to explore identity, leadership, and power privilege and oppression, through art and activism.

Guided by dynamic Teaching Artists, participants work together as an ensemble to create powerful performances that speak truth to both the reality of the world we live in today and the world they envision.
