Placemaking & Truth Telling: a Writing Workshop with Mathangi Subramanian

Saturday, Sept. 14th
10AM - 12PM | Free
University of Arizona, ENR2, Rm S210 |  1064 E Lowell St.
Refreshments will be available

One of the most complicated questions we are asked is, "Where are you from?" As the idea of borders grows at best obsolete, and, at worst, violent, and as our families expand to include more than our biological relatives, our feelings about where we belong shift and change.  In this workshop, we will explore the idea of home through a series of poetic exercises designed to help students understand the people, places, and beliefs that constitute our personal geographies. Students will leave with at least one list poem, as well as exercises that they can use to continue their writing practice.

Kore Press Institute is pleased to offer this dynamic, decolonize-your-practice training to help educators, community workers, and parents sharpen their intersectional gender literacy skills for creating inclusive, safe learning spaces for all to thrive!

The two-day immersion led by poet-educators Em and Teré, along with educational leader Eve Rifkin, will investigate the thicket of our socially constructed gender identities and the snare of implicit bias, especially as it occurs at the intersection of multiple other oppressions. Participants will identify areas for personal and professional growth and think how they can move into a more fully gender inclusive, equitable practice. Additionally, you will learn about student and parent rights and privacy laws along with a whole host of resources, including a reading list and current research. In collaboration with the Institute for LGBT Studies, twenty full and partial scholarships are also available upon request.
