Workshop Waiting Lists

Creative Voices for Palestine

 

A free virtual gathering to raise our voices in creative protest to support Palestinians. Following our first gathering in January 2024, we're hoping to host more gatherings to continue speaking out.

 

Creatives of ALL mediums are invited to engage their artistic voices in a safe and loving space. Whether you write, draw, dance, art journal, or use any other creative outlet, you are welcome.

We’ll use a variety of prompts, including art by Palestinian artists & writers + others speaking out, to spark ideas and create something we can then share on social media, to family/friends, and in our communications.

Our hope is for every person who joins to feel less alone and more brave in speaking out.

Filling Your Cup: A Gentle

Exploration of Creativi-tea

Together with my friend, Zen Alladina, a trained tea sommelier, arts facilitator, and published poet, we'll amble through a series of prompts to explore creativity through the way we experience tea (brew/steep, pour, sip/savor). All creative mediums are welcome and admission includes a printable coloring sheet to accompany.

Zen and I are already dreaming up another session of our cozy, virtual guided creative retreat.

 

Layered Stories: Virtual Reality Art

Gallery Tour + Creative Workshop

A delightfully immersive experience hosted in a virtual reality gallery space where we’ll be able to move around in avatar form from the comfort of our computer screens at home (kind of like being in a video game!).
 

Akin to meandering through an art museum, Kimberly Kuniko & Mira Musank, a textiles and upcyling artist, will be your guides as we amble through different sections of the gallery, pausing to engage with and observe a variety of 3D textiles, wearable art, and repurposed paper collage, each paired with a prompt to inspire your own creative explorations in whatever medium you wish.
 

When Mira created her textile art gallery for The Study in Artivism virtual reality exhibit last year and invited me to share one of my paper collages in the space, she shared that in collaborating, we were “layering our stories together”. This poetic turn of phrase has stuck with me ever since. This retreat explores how as creatives, we are constantly layering things together to tell a story. From disparate materials, colors, textures, words, sounds, memories, and our own imaginations, we weave things together to express something in a new form. All creative mediums welcome.
