The best way to make impactful art or be a true ally for a cause is to explore your own challenges with being a better person. We must understand the importance of discerning what we have been taught to think and what we believe based on our own value system. We will also look at literature on personal growth and leadership. Next, we must alter our thoughts and actions to better align with the vision we have for change. This is where we will look at social change campaigns and challenge their effectiveness, then look at deleting old prejudices we have about ourselves and others to understand the importance of being genuine when trying to influence positive change.

___HIRE ME___

I deliver engaging and inspiring workshops and talks at events, businesses, and universities across the world (see below for more details).

If you would like to speak about the possibility of me running a workshop or speaking at an event please get in touch via email:


I facilitate tailor made workshops, designed to give participants a variety of discussion opportunities, interactive elements, and a final longer task individually or as part of a group.

The goal of my workshops is that participants come out of the them with actionable points to be put into practice afterwards, rather than feeling as if they had simply talked through the same old topics on that subject.


Talks, presentations, panels and Q&As allow for an in depth look at a topic or issue. I can deliver solo talks on a specific topic and/or moderate or sit on group panels. I have previously spoken on topics including:

- Building Inclusive Communities

- Using YouTube for social good and charitable efforts

- LGBTQ+ Representation on TV/Film

- LGBTQ+ History

- Pop culture and Feminism

- Writing Strong Female Characters

- Women on YouTube

- How to use YouTube/social media as a tool in your career.

- & many more.

When you hear the term nonprofit, the first thing that typically comes to mind is a charity, or 501(c)(3) organization. That’s for good reason, since roughly 78% of all tax-exempt organizations are exempt under IRC Section 501(c)(3). The remaining 22% consists mostly of social welfare nonprofits, business leagues, and social/recreation clubs, plus about 24 less-voluminous possibilities.

But what does it mean to be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit? What sets a 501(c)(3) apart from the other categories of nonprofits out there? In a phrase: charitable purpose.

Rev. Eric Garbison, Co-founder of Cherith Brook Catholic Worker House

The Catholic Worker Movement is one of many grassroots communities that recognize that in fighting poverty we must address what Dorothy Day called, "This filthy rotten system." We will discuss how solidarity work differs from charity because it centers the voices of people who are directly impacted by racism and poverty.

Rev. Eric Garbison
Rev. Eric Garbison is a co-founder of Cherith Brook Catholic Worker. Cherith Brook is a community of hospitality and activism in Kansas City. It is a place where those impacted by poverty are given voice in leadership and encouraged to face various forms of internalized oppression through nonviolent ways of living. Cherith Brook is also actively involved in various local and national movements including The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for a Moral Revival.

Naomi McAuliffe (Poverty and Human Rights Campaign Manager, Amnesty International UK) advocates that good activism requires a balanced approach and using the right technology, not just popular technology.

Naomi manages 'Demand Dignity', Amnesty's Poverty and Human Rights Programme in the UK which includes campaigns on the right to housing, health and livelihood internationally, Corporate Accountability and campaigning against discrimination of Gypsy Roma Travellers. As the global priority campaign, Amnesty is exploring how digital activism, among other things, can be used by activists in the global south; including the opportunities, challenges and impacts of this. Naomi managed the 'Make Shell Come Clean' campaign which sought to address the impact of the oil industry in the Niger Delta and deployed a number of social media and online tools. In her spare time, Naomi also blogs and is an avid Tweeter.

Summary of Naomi's position:

"Social media is undoubtedly a useful activist tool but certainly we need to be realistic about its impact and see its role together with other forms of activism and the context its operating in. Facebook and Twitter were used by many to organise in Egypt in January this year, yet it was the people on the streets who brought about the revolution. Plus it is important to consider who has access to digital activism and what role do they have in social change - this returns a very mixed picture and one that no one can claim to be wholly positive or wholly negative."
