The Hero Saves the Planet [Rena Priest]

All Levels | F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, “Show me a hero and I’ll write you a tragedy.” Perhaps the tragedy of our heroes, is that for millennia the hero’s journey has almost exclusively been written to celebrate men of means or athletic ability. In this course, we will create characters that embody a new type of hero and explore story structures that challenge the traditional hero’s journey. We will discuss the possibility of embracing mythologies aimed at exalting environmental sustainability and social equality in order to have heroes who truly do save the planet.
