Pink Window Project Workshop with Badri Valian

December 4th, 3:00pm5:00pm

Free

Join us for a storytelling and art workshop with Badri Valian as part of her Pink Window project!

The “Pink Window” project, started in 2019, is an ongoing interactive art project about childhood stories, in which participants join Badri in the reflection and sharing of their own childhood memories while painting pink windows–a symbol and image from Badri’s personal history. “Pink Window” aims to be a communal and creative space that encourages self-reflection, connection, and bridging across experiences.

Please Note
This workshop will include glass and the breaking of glass, and is not suitable for children. Safety goggles, masks, and gloves will be provided. Participants should exercise caution and are responsible for their own safety. Participants should wear clothing suitable for painting and crafts.
