Not quite ready to start a club at your school, but still want a taste of a Body Banter discussion? Bring a Banter Brainstorm to your campus!
Banter Brainstorms are discussions guided by the following questions:
What is my current relationship with my body?
What factors have influenced how I perceive my body? Why do these factors influence how I perceive my body?
If I had to write my own rules about what my body means - to me and to others - what would they be?
At the end of the discussion, your group will come up with a visual representation - whether this be a video, poster or artwork - that represents your new set of “rules.”
We must first become conscious of what is holding us back, in order for us to grow.
By recognizing that our realities are not stagnant but completely within our grasp, we become empowered to make the changes that we want to see - to rewrite our narratives.
