Expression of Restorative Justice
The NW Justice Forum fosters the gathering of individuals committed to, or interested in learning about, the principles and values of Restorative Justice. This year, the Forum is highlighting creative expressions of restorative justice, including through the arts: theatrical performance, storytelling, visual art, music, poetry, or other methods of inspired communication or expression.
Three key areas of focus for the conference are:
Restorative Justice Inspires: What does RJ sound like, look like, feel like in your practice and your community?
Restorative Justice Supports Truth-Telling: What important stories and experiences does RJ allow to be better heard?
Restorative Justice Incorporates: What other work in our community is intersecting with RJ?
Times TBD Join us for an afternoon of Open Space Technology, where the agenda is created and managed by all who attend. This experience guarantees the conversations we have will be the ones we need the most! Open Space meetings happen in circles. With a few simple logistical guidelines, participants are empowered to name and join the conversations they most want to have. This structure elevates topics that are urgent to the participants, promotes equality of voice and co-ownership of the experience. It has been used successfully to provide ah-ha’s, breakthroughs, community-building and fresh thinking for groups of a few people and a few thousand people. If you’ve ever been to a conference or training where the most valuable conversations happened at the coffee breaks, Open Space is designed to make those conversations the main event.
Please consider whether you can join us for this half-day Open Space kickoff to our Forum – form stronger interpersonal connections, spark new ideas, and grow your sense of belonging in this RJ community, leading into the two days of more traditional programming.
