1Hood Takeover at #PTO2018

1Hood Media is Headed to the Pedagogy an Theatre of the Oppressed Conference

1Hood Media is headed the Indiana University of Pennsylvania this weekend to participate in the Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed Conference. 

Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed "supports people whose work challenges oppressive systems by promoting critical thinking and social justice through liberatory theatre and popular education." The 4-day conference features panels, workshops, forums and performances from community changemakers, activists and educators. 


On Friday June 8 1Hood's Director of Arts Education and Cultural Enrichment, Taliya Allen, will be participating in the Communities, Activism, Education: Building Methodologies panel. The following afternoon, 1Hood teaching artists will be presenting Word! The Breakdown. This interactive writing workshop encourages self-expression through hip-hop and social justice. Attendees will focus on the elements and core competencies of creative writing and conscious creation. That evening, we're bringing lyricism and sound to #PTO2018 with a group performance from Jasiri X, Blak Rapp Madusa, Jacquea Mae, LiveFromtheCity and many more!
