$5-10, no one turned away
Workshop in English Bring a pen and a journal (or sketchbook)
This workshop invites us to imagine "resilience" five years from now, in Montreal or another city/town of your choice. Participants will be invited, through prompts, to write or visually illustrate residents' empowered life in various scenarios. Participants will be encouraged to explore speculative and realist styles of “future-representing”, and to share and discuss what they individually create. If interested, participants will be invited to also make collaborative compositions to build on these themes together, in written text, graphical poster, or combinations of both.
