Heart of the Beast Workshop Series (Virtual)

Heart of the Beast Workshop Series (Virtual)

HOB presents a series of virtual workshops with Graci Horne & Ifrah Mansou

Graci Horne & Ifrah Mansour are co-creating this online workshop series. Workshops will explore feelings, findings & footprints using discarded items in your home to make Memorabilia for your very own time-Capsule. Through art making, you will explore what it means to be an ancestor and reflect on our collective role and impact on the climate change crisis.

Artists will guide reflections around questions such as: What does it means to be an ancestor someday? What have we inherited? What will we leave behind? While these are big questions that trigger emotions artists wish to unpack and process these questions in community with the intention of doing healing work for our planet. Join us!

Dates: Jan. 22, Jan. 29, Feb 5 Time: 2 pm - 3:30 pm
