Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Building the World We Dream About: An Anti-racism Multicultural Program

Activity 1: Welcome and Introductions

Activity time: 20 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: An object that can be passed around as each participant speaks

Description of Activity

Invite participants to share a story that is often told about them by family or friends. For example, "My partner always says I never order food without asking 20 questions of the wait staff." Explain that each person has one minute to tell their story and that you will gently enforce that time limit in order to keep the workshop moving. Model this one-minute story telling, and then encourage participants to speak as they are ready and comfortable. You may wish to use an object such as a stone or talking stick to pass to each person as they speak.
