Free Street Talks

Custom-designed workshops to tackle difficult conversations in joyful and creative ways.

“These  discussions  and  resources  have  fed  me  in  so  many  ways  and  have  allowed  me  to  have  vocabulary  for  things  I  never  had  names  for  …  I  can’t  tell  you  how  much  this  has  energized  me  to  move  forward  and  be  more  specific.  It  has  also  reminded  me  to  actively  seek  out  spaces  and  people  who  want  to  have discussions.”

Storyfront
