All Levels | How do our bodies hold onto experiences? How do generations of people of color, queer and trans people, and others who have experienced marginalization carry those stories over generations? This free workshop is for anyone who has ever felt a story in their bones or carried tension in their neck and wanted to finally find a way to translate it to the page. Join writer, performer, and doula Jordan Alam in exploring the physical act of writing as a form of expressing a body story. This workshop is geared towards people who have experienced marginalization, including intergenerational trauma, and will center the voices of people of color. This workshop is generously supported by 4Culture.

 

This workshop is free, but requires registration.
