Cultural Organizing & Digital Storytelling

May 9 May 26, 2022

Providing our communities with political education through organizing is one way to institutionalize justice. Culture and art is how we visualize the possibility of justice and liberation in our everyday lives. re:power is known for building trainings that give people and campaigns the tools they need to lead successful progressive campaigns.

The purpose of this training is to expand re:power’s trainees’ capacity to use cultural organizing and digital storytelling to empower new leaders to spark social change within their communities. The goal of this pilot will be to test recruiting a community of artists, content creators, and organizers who already hold a progressive politic in order to collectively build radical narrative power. Our Lead Trainer, Amber J. Phillips, holds deep love and knowledge for telling stories and building community online, and is excited to share it with others in community.

This course is a pilot offering, with a very limited number of spots. We are especially interested in welcoming creative organizers who are interested in being both learners and contributors to the development of the curriculum.


Who is this course for?

  • Content creators:  If you consider yourself an artist , digital influencer, storyteller, and/or cultural organizer who doesn’t only enjoy taking in content online but wants to make content to add to the conversation– this training is for you.
  • Relational & people-focused: Participants will connect with a community of creators who are invested in making digital content that is entertaining, visually engaging, and calls people to take action and think deeper about different socio-political issues.
  • Changemakers: Lastly, this training is for the creator who sees the importance and has been moved by the power of digital storytelling and cultural creation.
