[VIRTUAL] WORKSHOP: Fostering Creativity Across Generations

Fridays, July 22 and 29, 2022 | 10 AM ET – 12 PM ET
Online | 2 Sessions | Sliding Scale $75- $150 | REGISTER HERE! (One Ticket Per Family Unit)

**This is a workshop that priorities BIPOC writers but welcomes allies.**

**Apply for a scholarship seat here! Limited scholarship seats are available and will be chosen by lottery. The deadline to apply for a scholarship seat is Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at 5 PM ET.**

This two-part writing workshop series, led by Aaisha Bhuiyan and Sana Khan, invites participants to consider how creativity passes from one generation to the next. Issues of inheritance, translation, and reinvention will be open to investigation. Meanwhile, we will unsettle the hierarchies that render some forms of creative expression more legible–and valued–than others.

The virtual workshop series focuses on personal reflection in the first session and collaboration in the second session. Each ticket is valid for an intergenerational unit, however defined. With fostering intergenerational creativity as our aim, where can we go as artists, ancestors, and community members?

Though prompts will be writing-based, we welcome porous exchange between forms.

Where are you from . . . ? No—where are you from from?” It’s a question every Asian American gets asked, the refrain of an incessant chorus saying you’ll never belong here, you’re a perpetual foreigner, you’ll always be seen as an alien, an object, or a threat. Monica Youn’s...
