Acknowledging Our Relationship to Land: A Writing Workshop with Leonarda Carranza
Join us for an afternoon of creative expression, self-reflection and writing, focused on relationship to land(s) near and far. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own experiences of being in/from a place, through writing prompts, freewriting exercises and group discussion. Leonarda will bring writing to share as well. Bring your favourite notebook or just bring yourself (we will have writing materials). No experience required, anyone aged 12 and older is welcome to attend. Barrier-free space, all-gender washroom. Tea and cookies provided.
