RECENTRE: FALL WRITING WORKSHOPS
with Elwood Jimmy and Janet Rogers

These workshops are part of the RECENTRE initiative guest curated by Su-Ying Lee and presented by Trinity Square Video.


WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

Writing for what is absent
with Elwood Jimmy

09 October 2018, 6:30 - 9PM
401 Richmond Street West
Spots available: 9

Participants will be led through individual, and collective space-holding exercises before being asked to respond to provocations relating to bodies – the human and non-human, the visible and invisible – in relation to their own practices, communities, sensibilities and ways of being. The workshop is exploratory and designed for personal and collective inquiry and reflection.



The Dynamics of Rowing Your Own Boat: Cultural Competency Today
with Janet Rogers

18 October 2018, 6:30 - 9PM
401 Richmond Street West
Spots available: 25

Through visual presentation and group discussion, this workshop will focus on concepts and practices of what defines culture and that which currently exists which is not culture in relationship to region and territory. Poet, media and sound artist Janet Rogers brings her Haudenosaunee cultural elements into most everything she produces with the intention to invite all other cultural producers to work from their own places of cultural grounding.
