Have you witnessed concerning behavior or circumstances but don’t know how to respond?  This workshop will address the many ways to respond to these situations using playback as an interactive approach and brings the practice of being an active bystander to a new level.

 Bystanders support diversity and inclusion
 Bystanders help interrupt the cycle of unconscious bias
 It’s hard to be an active bystander
 Practice makes a difference

In this workshop an interactive playback approach is used to encounter our reluctance to be active bystanders, reflect on a variety of bystander moves, and practice ways to make a difference.  We can create a culture of active bystanders and support diversity and inclusion. Playback is a form of improvisational presentation that reflects back the feelings, thoughts and stories of the people in a community.

The NEA-funded True Story Theater troupe has been doing workshops on active bystanders as diversity allies since 2004. See for more information.
