Imagining the Future Workshop
October 2nd @ 1:00pm–5:00pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Saturday, repeating until October 16, 2021
Imagining the Future is a storytelling and world-building workshop for immigrant and refugee artists co-facilitated by choreographer Hope Mohr and visual artist Ranu Mukherjee.
Through movement, drawing, and writing, we will envision how we want to live into the future and begin to create embodied languages of resilience and power. Organized in partnership with Hope Mohr Dance and ARTogether, this workshop offers a safe space to ground ourselves in our bodies and in sensation, explore experiences of rupture, and give voice to what sustains us. Through imagining rupture as a character that changes over time, we connect to its lessons and to our personal sense of continuity in order to build visions of possible futures. Painters, dancers, musicians, photographers, and poets – we welcome artists from all mediums to bring their stories, learn from each other, and collaborate.
Participants are chosen from a list of applicants. This workshop will take place in person at the Center for Empowering Refugees and Immigrants. All participants are expected to be vaccinated by the time of the workshop. All Covid-19 precautions will be taken as per Alameda County guidelines.
