Stitched: Recreating the Future By Rewriting Our Histories

07:00 pm - 04/18/2018

@ Brown University LGBTQ Center

75 Waterman St, 321 Stephen Robert '62 Campus Center
Providence RI  02906



Join the Sarah Doyle Women's Center and the LGBTQ Center in welcoming this interactive workshop with Climbing PoeTree. It surges from the collective wisdom and collaborative power of our communities using S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D., a growing tapestry of Stories, Testimonies, Intentions, Truths, Confessions, Healing, Expressions, and Dreams that we have collected and stitched together from more than 5,000 audience members and workshop participants across the country. The magic of S.T.I.T.C.H.E.D comes from declaring our truths, and bearing witness to others’. When we tell our own stories, we reclaim the power to write our own futures. When we recognize ourselves in each other, we begin to dispel the myths that are created to keep us divided. This workshop gives participants the opportunity to read and find connections in the stories of strangers, and contribute their own stories through a process of group and personal reflection.

This event is wheelchair accessible, but please contact je-shawna_wholey@brown.edu if further accessibility needs are necessary.

A special thanks to our co-sponsors: The English Department, Office of Residential Life, The Theatre Arts and Performance Studies Department, The Pembroke Center, The Multiracial Heritage Series, The Visual Arts Department, The Music Department, and the Latinx Heritage Series.
