Wait…Who’s the Enemy Again??! Transforming Militarism and Violence in Oakland Through Liberation Arts

Tatiana Chaterji, Willanona Perry, Luis Montoya & Xirix Bickham
BAY - Peace Youth Action Team
Saturday, 2:15 pm to 3:45 pm -- Rm. B-253

Oakland youth will report back on their experiences with increased militarization in their schools and how this trend connects to military recruitment and police terror. You will enter a creative, playful and expressive space to question systemic forces that contribute to the war-like conditions around us. Youth will guide you through a physical, experiential process of Theater of the Oppressed and related improvisational forms to unlock the resistance and resilience we carry in our bodies.
