Cultural Conversations

Say his Name: Healing from our Collective Cultural Trauma in the age of George Floyd

Dana Patterson

Dr. Dana Patterson has worked with Folkmoot for three years to engage the Folkmoot community with resources that have helped to deconstruct our deeply held cultural beliefs that cause unhealthy, sometimes racist behaviors. Dana’s approach is of acceptance and building new awareness, where participants are welcomed to make mistakes and examine their preconceived thoughts and feelings. Online classes will be participatory, interactive and a safe learning environment for people of all backgrounds. Cultural Conversations will be expanded in the spring to include in-person training events for the community, student groups, businesses and corporations.

Workshop will be held via Zoom and Facebook Live, once a month, between August and December always on Tuesday
