Black Professionals Workshop Series
November 13 @ 6:00 pm - December 18 @ 8:00 pm| Free
We all have workplace stories! Join Ex Fabula and Black professionals for some unique storytelling experiences at the new Saint Kate Arts Hotel! This series will create brave spaces to share truths about the world of work. These workshops are Black led; experienced storytelling coach Rochelle Fritsch and her team will guide participants through interactive, small group activities. Each session is free and open to the public, and will have a different theme – so attend just one or all four. No need to prepare anything in advance. Sign up to come alone or bring a friend, and make sure to come early or stay a bit afterwards to check out Milwaukee’s new arts hotel!
