About the course
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 the community. 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.

This is an interactive course. We ask participants to write in the chat box, share verbally, and participate in breakout group discussion. We understand that folks have a lot going on though, so if you are not able to participate in a breakout discussion you can let the tech moderator know. We encourage, but do not require, participants to turn on video during breakout discussions.
