Fundraiser at Creative Cauldron: Thunder Knocking on the Door

Purchase tickets and learn more here: http://www.creativecauldron.org/tinner-hill-fundraiser.html

Creative Cauldron’s February 24, 2019 2:00 PM performance of Thunder Knocking on the Door will be a fundraiser for the Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation.

The show features a stellar professional cast and is the kind of blues musical that has audiences on their feet after every performance. In 2013, Creative Cauldron hosted the production to sold out houses and wanted to bring it back for our 10th anniversary season.

 The tickets will be sold for $35 each and none of Creative Cauldron’s usual discounts (senior, military, etc.) will be available. A portion of the ticket sales (approximately 48%) will be donated to the Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation’s Social Justice Committee of Falls Church and Vicinity.

Have you ever felt immobilized by a racist comment? Do you wish you had the vocabulary and the confidence to engage in a conversation about race?

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn techniques to navigate conversations about race while remaining assertive, empathetic, and calm. Through games, role-playing and observation, participants will practice these conversation techniques, clarify common but complex terms such as racism, prejudice, and discrimination, and develop a personalized communication plan to take with them through their everyday lives. This event is free.

Our facilitators are Latisha Jones and Dena Adriance. Latisha has been a theater educator for over ten years with a specialty in diversity training and multicultural education. Dena is a coach, trainer, and facilitator who has been creating safe spaces for difficult conversations for close to 15 years. You can learn more about our facilitators on the eventbrite page above.

This event is organized by the Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation and the Social Justice Committee of Falls Church and Vicinity, which is an interfaith network of Falls Church congregations, community leaders, and community members exploring how to create a local culture united in diversity.

You do not need to bring your printed ticket. We will have a list of registered guests at the door.

This workshop deals with sensitive subject matter and may be difficult for children under the age of 13. Parental discretion is advised and we do not recommend this workshop for children under 10.
