Please join us on October 7 for “Roots and Branches,” a celebration to remember our history, enjoy time together, inspire action and creativity, and renew our spirits. This will be a hands-on event at the Scrap Exchange in Durham. We’ll start with a potluck lunch at noon, and then enjoy workshops on writing and art, delving into personal insight and political expressions. There will be something for everyone, young and old, even if you don’t see yourself as the “creative” type! You’ll get to attend two of the following:
  • SHRINES (Charron Andrews) Make a small window sill shrine dedicated to love and wonder, using discarded bits and pieces from everyday life. Designed for teens and adults.
  • ART-IVISM (lizzie mcmanus-dail) Come ready to make some political signs and think creatively about how we can use art - in its many forms - to rejuvenate our revolution and to make powerful statements. You'll leave with a work that you can carry to the next Tuesday with Tillis or hang in your window. No artistic experience necessary. Children are welcome.
  • PERSONAL ICONS (Bryant Holsenbeck) Using found materials from the artist magic junk box, participants will make an icon for and about themselves. Who are you?  How do you view the world?  What do you hope for? What do you need protection for? These are questions that everyone can ask themselves as they bring an abstract portrait of themselves to life. Children are welcome.
  • WRITING (Carol Henderson) Using visual and written prompts, we will write about what has rooted and unrooted us. Tap roots and tree rings. What can be pruned? What can be encouraged to branch out and flourish? Designed for teens and adults.
All materials will be provided, but you may bring some of your own if you want. We look forward to celebrating with you on October 7th!
Cost: $25. Children are free. If you are able, you may bring a side dish, drink or dessert to share at the potluck (not required).
