Event description

Description

Part of Growing Room 2019

Writing our own stories honestly means confronting memories and emotions that may represent painful, even traumatic, events. In this workshop, participants will discuss and exchange best practices for writing and performing these difficult topics in ways that are less likely to reinjure the artist and /or cause the audience undue distress. Participants are encouraged to bring works in progress to workshop.

Instructor: Rabbit Richards
Venue: Native Education College
Date: Saturday, March 9, 2019, 3:00pm – 7:00pm
Cost: $25
