Struggling to process and confront anti-Black and anti-Asian racism within your social networks? Explore the healing power of creative writing!
The July 11th creative writing workshop focuses on “Mental Health and Multiracial Solidarity.”
Mental health advocates Kelechi Ubozoh and Shizue Seigel, psychiatrist Ravi Chandra, and storyteller/medicine woman Tureeda Mikell discuss anti-Black/anti-Asian racism with tools for self-care, and creative writing for healing.
Participants will be invited to engage in creative writing exercises around questions like: What are you thinking and feeling right now? How were you personally impacted by George Floyd’s murder and subsequent events. Have you personally experienced or witnessed anti-black or anti-Asian racism? What was your response? How would you respond differently today? How do you respond to stress? What are you doing for self-care? How to deal with parents and peer pressure?
The workshop will be hosted on Zoom and YouTube Live with a sliding scale fee of $5~$15 to help support our presenters, organizers, tech and labor costs. If you are interested in participating but are unable to afford the lowest ticketing tier, please email programs [at] oacc.cc and we would be happy to work with you on making this event accessible.
