Red Salmon Arts and Jenuine Artworks Present
BloodStories: Resistance and Resilience: A safe creative space for all identities to write, right, rite, together.
Facilitated by Jenuine Poetess, this event invites participants to gather in circle to write and share in three rounds. The theme is centered around bloodstories—as they pertain to global & community justice/injustice; to definitions & expressions of family, of kinship; and to identity—our own pulsing truths.
We will begin writing at 2:30pm and format will follow a freewrite, share; freewrite, share; freewrite, share cycle guided by Jenuine. You are welcome to bring your own journals or favorite writing utencils; paper and pens will be provided. Sharing is not required, but invited. Jenuine will have copies of her chapbook, BloodStories, for sale for $12 and all sales will be donated to Resistencia Bookstore to support their continued community programming.
