Festival Highlight: Make Like a Tree and Leaf with 826DC

The Benevolent Media Festival is a celebration of Washington, D.C.’s community of storytellers and designers dedicated to social and environmental good. Members of the community who identify as “benevolent media creators” are invited to host and organize their own lectures, workshops, performances, networking events or other activities, located at multiple venues across the city, that compel audiences to care about a cause, take action on an issue, or promote a point of view through strategic and inspiring multimedia. The events are scheduled for November 4-7, 2011.

What: Make Like a Tree and Leaf Writing Workshop

When: Sunday November 6,2011 3:00pm-5:00pm

Where: 826DC 3233 14th ST. NW

Trees are like people: they grow, they change, and no two are exactly the same. Imagine you are a tree: what makes you unique? Bring a leaf from your favorite tree and let it inspire you to write a story about the kind of life you have and how you make a difference to those around you.
