Brown University - David Winton Bell Gallery List Art Building Room 110
Alixa and Naima will facilitate an interactive workshop that surges from the collective wisdom and collaborative power of our communities using S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D., a growing tapestry of Stories, Testimonies, Intentions, Truths, Confessions, Healing, Expressions, and Dreams collected and stitched together from more than 5,000 audience members and workshop participants across the country. The magic of S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D comes from declaring our truths, and bearing witness to others’. When we tell our own stories, we reclaim the power to write our own futures. When we recognize ourselves in each other, we begin to dispel the myths that are created to keep us divided. This workshop gives participants the opportunity to read and find connections in the stories of strangers, and contribute their own stories through a process of group and personal reflection.
