This youth-led workshop engages participants of all ages in Image Theater, a collective body image activity that addresses issues of privilege in uneven relationships following Boal’s “Theater of the Oppressed”. Participants in this workshop will explore a situation of injustice, focusing on food access and health inequities. Young presenters will briefly share their activist work addressing the challenges and strengths of community-based activism. Through Image Theater, participants will examine their different experiences of racial oppression in society.
