This is DEFINE, an ongoing storytelling event that uses each of our individual experience to challenge the status quo and cultural binaries our society often takes for granted.

Crossroads Theater | 2590 Washington Street, Denver CO, 80205              

The event includes:
*A movement component led by CSC to get us in our bodies.
*The sharing of our stories through each of our own mediums
*A forum to further discuss and dig into the topic

Suggested Donation: $5

*No one is turned away for lack of funds

DEFINE: Racism is going to be a Person of Color only space in order to allow the very necessary space for People of Color to be in community with one another and share common experiences without feeling obligated to educate, explain or censor. This request is specific to the DEFINE:Racism event. There will be future DEFINE events when we all come back together.
