Taking Up Space: From Teens’ Experience

The main objective of this workshop is to explore what it means to take up space and becoming more comfortable with expressing your ideas, your needs, and your feelings. This workshop aims to give youth and adults alike a new perspective on respecting others’ voices and advocating for others. We will grow our definition of what taking up space means and analyzing how this definition of taking up space fits into our lives currently and ways we’d like to change it moving forward. This workshop is led through the lens of student activists navigating adult-oriented activist spaces and learning how to amplify our voices. Thus we’re asking for any self-identified adults to take a step back in this space and listen to what the youth have to say.
