IN THIS HOUSE is a community storytelling project focusing on states of play at the intersection of form and narrative. Where and how do we belong? In belonging, where and how do we define home? IN THIS HOUSE is an experimental response to collecting. In this two-part workshop, participants will create a house (small sculpture, drawing, collage) and create a short story based on their work. Pre-registration is required. Space is limited and priority will be given to BIPOC voices. Please use this form to register: https://forms.gle/azaDAeeNzUU13xaE9
