Rehearsals for Change

Kamal Badhey, Noni Carter, Jordan Cruz, Carina del Valle Schorske

This three-part workshop beginning on zoom due to Omicron, and moving to in-person in March, is guiding participants to express their experiences of the pandemic through images and words. Using family and neighborhood photographs, images taken during the workshops, oral storytelling and collective writing initiated in the workshop and from mutual interviews, we are creating stories of loss and resilience. Together, we will be marking communal struggles and hopes as well as imagining strategies for justice and repair. Some of our poetry, letters, spirit cards, collages, and stories will be shared in the final exhibition.
