Simona Simkins, Communicating Arts Graduate Student, to present at University of Minnesota-Duluths Summit on Equity, Diversity, and Multiculturalism

The University of Minnesota-Duluth's Diversity Commission is hosting its 2014 Summit on Equity, Diversity and Multiculturalism on Tuesday, February 25, 2014. This summit will bring together faculty, staff, and students, as well as community members to present workshops that address issues of equity, diversity and multiculturalism. Author, educator and activist Dr. Angela Davis will be the Keynote Speaker.

Simona Simkins, UW-Superior M.A. student in Communicating Arts, will be presenting a workshop entitled "Forum Theatre for Positive Dialogue." The workshop offers participants a safe space to practice new outcomes for conflict situations by creating a theatre scene through improvisation that centers on issues of equity, diversity, and multiculturalism. Theatre warm-ups, group sculpting, and improvised scene work culminate in a group facilitation that engages the audience to craft new endings and possible solutions to a staged conflict. Simona's work aims to unveil real issues of diversity, giving participants an experience in theatre as a tool for dialogue, understanding, and growth.
