Let's talk about shame. This is a concept that has been popularized in recent years and it seems that the cultural conclusion is that there is no place for shame in our growth. So I brought in Carmen Spagnola and Rachael Rice to share their thoughts on shame and what it could look like to use shame as a tool for healing and community building.

I am a full-time artist, writer, and educator. My work lies at the crossroads of creative expression, community, justice, teaching, healing and magic.
My background is in critical pedagogy + constructivist theory where I specialized in differentiated instruction and educating for democracy with concentrations in Art and English.
I have spent over 20 years in the classroom as a certified, licensed public school art teacher, as well as in after-school and out-of-school community-based arts programs that serve primarily at-risk youth, folks with disabilities and low-income communities.
In a subsequent professional iteration I spent some years in the social enterprise non-profit startup world where I worked to implement systems to support communities where our current systems have failed. This included things like innovative repurposing of industrial surplus, outreach, development + fundraising, and starting alternative + complementary currency supported approaches to health care.
