Healing Around Race: A Creative Writing Workshop

July 25 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

$5 – $15

Struggling to process and confront anti-Black and anti-Asian racism within your social networks? Explore the healing power of creative writing!

The July 25th workshop focuses on “Stand Together – Creativity and Social Justice”

Eth-Noh-Tec storytellers Robert Kikuchi Yngojo and Nancy Wang, poet Jennifer Hasegawa, poet/KFPFA journalist Dennis J Bernstein, poet/musician/KPFA & POO DJ Avotcja discuss how social justice informs their art.

Participants will be invited to engage in creative writing exercises around questions like: What arts do you resonate with and why? What are your creative outlets? If I could, this is the story I’d tell.

Participants will be invited to engage in creative writing exercises around questions like: What are you thinking and feeling right now? How were you personally impacted by George Floyd’s murder and subsequent events. Have you personally experienced or witnessed anti-black or anti-Asian racism? What was your response? How would you respond differently today? How do you respond to stress? What are you doing for self-care? How to deal with parents and peer pressure?

NOTE: The workshop will be hosted on Zoom and YouTube Live with a sliding scale fee of $5~$15 to help support our presenters, organizers, tech and labor costs. If you are interested in participating but are unable to afford the lowest ticketing tier, please email programs@oacc.cc and we would be happy to work with you on making this event accessible.
