Brave Space

Brave Space is an affinity space created for Black, Latinx, Asian, Indigenous, and other folks of color to share stories. We created this space for storytellers of color in order to reduce the harm caused by and perpetuated by whiteness and stereotypes.

These gatherings hold space for people of the global majority to share their truths and personal experiences. They are facilitated by Ex Fabula’s experienced BIPOC storytelling coaches, who guide participants through interactive, small group activities. Sessions are free, and each one explores a theme relevant to current times.
