FACILITATORS TRAINING & GROUP WORKSHOPS:
RACE: ARE WE SO DIFFERENT? EXHIBITION AT PACIFIC SCIENCE CENTER
Pacific Science Center and the City of Seattle Race and Social Justice Initiative are looking for groups to participate in free, pre- and post-exhibit Group Workshops about the nationally-touring exhibit RACE: Are We So Different? Running September 28, 2013 - January 5, 2014 at Pacific Science Center,
this exhibit raises profound questions about the American concept of race. Workshops are tailored for groups who plan to use the exhibit to expand and apply their understanding of racial equity in their own groups and communities. Learn more about Group Workshops and how to organize them for a group or groups you're connected to.
Workshops will be facilitated by trained volunteers from the community. Facilitator trainings for people living and/or working in Seattle and on the Eastside are now full. The training in Federal Way on September 21st is open to people living and/or working in South King and Pierce Counties. We will also be announcing another training in Snohomish County for people who live and/or work there. Please check the registration form for information on all open trainings. If you missed this opportunity to become trained as a facilitator, you can still play a leadership role in building racial equity by organizing a Group Workshop.
