Creating Connections Workshop with Dear Evan Hansen
This is a past event. Tuesday, January 8 at 3:30pm 5:30pm
Microsoft Store- Pioneer Place 300 S.W. Yamhill St., Portland, OR
Microsoft Store and the Tony award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen are partnering to provide a free two-hour workshop for students ages 13 and up who want to authentically connect to themselves, friends, family and their communities.
Dear Evan Hansen has received critical acclaim and has inspired conversation about mental health and the perils of living in a society hyperconnected by social media, which can often feel lonely.
Workshop participants will define what it means to make authentic connections and explore ways to create those connections. Students choose how they want to connect and will use Microsoft tools to research and create an actionable plan for reaching out.
In this workshop, participants will:
- Define what making a connection means to them.
- Demonstrate turning goals into a clear and meaningful action plan.
- Use Office 365, especially the latest features in PowerPoint and Windows 10 apps, to research, create and share their action plan.
The parent, legal guardian or authorized adult caregiver of every workshop participant under 17 years of age must sign a Participation Agreement upon arrival and remain in Microsoft Store for the duration of the event. No prior experience with the Microsoft applications is necessary.
