The Mead is partnering with the Arts at Amherst Initiative, Multicultural Resource Center, and Queer Resource Center to present a Creative Resilience Workshop Series led by contemporary artists Chelvanaya Gabriel and Mars.
Self-care can be hard to prioritize, but it is also a form of essential labor that helps you center yourself in your daily life and work. Join us for a series of workshops led by local artists Mars and Chelvanaya Gabriel designed to teach creative resilience as a model for self-care. These workshops are designed to center BIPOC experiences of labor and self-care.
Workshop #1 Essential Work: An Embodied Awareness of White Supremacy
What is essential work? Essential work is self-care. For many, self-care is a luxury. In this workshop, we learn that it is a NECESSITY in abolishing white supremacy. We will co-create space for your inner voice and bring revelations to how that reflects in the outward reality of white supremacy and racism. It’s time to eradicate racism at the source. Naya and Mars guide you in creating a relationship with your voice and its true power.
This program is limited to 15 participants, but open to everyone. Registration is required.
Stay tuned for more information about the second workshop in this series!
