OUR NENES' STORIES: ancestral storytelling workshop

OUR NENES' STORIES: ancestral storytelling workshop

Arts and Culture

Description

This workshop is for those of us who crave to connect to the stories of the people we come from. It is for those of us that have access to some of those stories, and for those of us that don’t, but wish we did. For those of us who live in diasporic communities and question our relationship to our ancestors and homelands. For those of us that want to connect more deeply to the herstories of the lands we currently live on. For those of us that want to acknowledge the legacies and ongoing realities of genocide, on the lands we live on, and the lands our ancestors are from. This workshop is for all of us who believe that storytelling and art can be transformative tools used towards bridging the longing in our hearts and the political realities that have given cause to these longings. Join us for a writing and interdisciplinary arts workshop where we will imagine into the past, integrate our experiences in the present, and vision into the future.
