"Art exists where language fails." - Sheila Pepe
In this 10-week ONLINE program, participants in Stay Gold will learn about installation art, receive a kit with the materials needed to create mini-installations, and learn new skills as they move through the process. Through video tutorials and live Zoom meetings, teaching artists will work with participants to work through their ideas and troubleshoot creative ways to make their imagined spaces real.
Many queer and LGBTQIA+ people have had to imagine worlds in which they could exist openly and freely. This queer imaginary offers a respite from a world that would often rather not accept or accommodate difference. This program provides the opportunity to explore these imaginaries and create openings to further explore what it means to be queer in a world where we must choose to live outside the "norm" or conform. As beings who are constantly becoming and refuse to allow our narratives to be told about us and without us, we believe it is important to highlight the imaginary and use this as an opportunity for community-building, skill-building, and conscious co-creation.
