Join us for an afternoon of bismuth crystal growing followed by mixed media collage making as we creatively explore elements of our own mixed-race/multicultural identities. Participants will be emailed questions and suggested reading passages ahead of time to guide group discussion during the program. Snacks, bismuth ingot, and collage source materials will be provided, but feel free to bring food for yourselves or to share during the break between activities. Open to all identities and those interested in growing racial consciousness.
Leana Scott is curious about exploring mixed-race and multicultural identities through conversation, writing, art, humor, and compassion. Through these practices she enjoys creatively working with others to build a voice for these emerging identities. At the intersection of several cultural worlds herself, Leana believes there is infinite possibility for rethinking and questioning traditional ideas on identity, race, community, power, and human connection. Leana can often be found spending copious amounts of time outside, preferably in her cleats, either playing soccer, or growing the beautiful game for young players in Los Angeles.
While most WCCW programming is free or donation-based, with no one turned away for lack of funds, we do offer some workshops that have fees associated. This covers materials and allows us to pay the leaders of these workshops for their time and expertise, and to put a small percentage back into WCCW. This income, in addition to memberships, is what lets us keep the doors open and the lights on. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested though, so we also offer volunteer opportunities and free community tickets to each event or workshop (number varies depending on capacity of the class). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to find out more about this opportunity for a specific event.
