Conference on Community Writing™
October 21-23, 2021
DeepThink Tanks are participatory, action-oriented working sessions focused on critical social and environmental issues and facilitated by scholars and community leaders. Attendees actively engage with how to address these issues in our teaching, research, community activism, and organizing.
Facilitated by scholars and community leaders, CCW2021 DeepThink Tank themes will include: Coalition Building for a Swimmable Anacostia: Environmental Restoration as Racial Justice; Decolonizing Philanthropy; Disability Justice; The Racial Realism of Narrative: Methodologies of Refusal; and Engaging Community through Contemplative Practice and Writehealing.
Workshop sessions involve interactive presentation and collaborative work with participants. Community and university experts will lead educational sessions on a wide array of topics to help attendees learn new skills and processes that they can apply in their own lives and neighborhoods and at their own institutions or places of work.
