Me, Myself, and Us: Evolving Identity Beyond Labels

May 27, 2023 | 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. | Redmond Proficiency Academy

150 SW 25th St, Redmond OR 97756

As a multimedia artist, MOsley WOtta uses personal, lived experiences to drive his explorations into identity, place, race, and care. Through examples from his recent work, which incorporates musical, visual, and immersive performance with discussion and dialogue practices, WOtta will guide participants in exploring how identity labels both inform our relationship to our communities—and how it can transform them. This workshop will encourage us to delve into our own experiences around race, place, and identity. Through a care-centered conversation, we’ll be challenged to transcend traditional labels and imagine alternative ways of understanding and expressing who and where we are within our communities.

Please note that registration for this in-person event is limited to thirty people. Register here.

This event is made possible by a grant from The Ford Family Foundation.
