New Logo Discussion

As you know, there has been a long-standing plan to update the OWADP logo. This intention was reconfirmed at the 2016 visioning retreat. As a first step to restarting the process, the Steering Committee put out a call for proposals that ended on June 30 2017. As a next step, we invite interested OWADP members to join us to discuss the concepts and values we would like the new logo to express and to review the proposals we received with these in mind. This conversation will take place 7:00 - 8:30 pm on 31 July at 6312 Florio Street, Oakland (Carol Mancke's house near intersection of College and Claremont). Light food and beverages will be served and rides back to BART afterwards can be provided.

Please email Carol Mancke if you would like to attend: cjmancke@hotmail.com

OWA Annual Retreat

September 29 - October 1, 2017

Theme: Equity Resilience Power

The main program will be a workshop which will use techniques from Theatre of the Oppressed to explore the topic: Equity Resilience Power. Theatre of the Oppressed, developed by Brazilian Augusto Boal, is based on the work of Brazilian educator and theorist Paulo Freire. As a teaching technique, Theatre of the Oppressed trains the audience to take action and explore critical thinking, analyzing current social issues. Our presenter, Elizabeth Gore, worked for a decade with Theater of the Oppressed groups in the U.S. and abroad. She trained directly with Theater of the Oppressed founder, Augusto Boal. Ms. Gore has a B.S. in Radio, Television and Film from Northwestern University (2003), an M.A. in Anthropology of Education from Stanford University (2007), and a M.A. in Teaching from Brown University (2008). After teaching drama at a high school in Richmond, CA, Ms. Gore will join the Industrial Areas Foundation as a community organizer.
