Writing Our Legacy is running a free one-day workshop to help you explore your childhood home – and bring it to life, in a new project called No Place Like Home.
Travel back in time to that house, town, neighbourhood or country where you grew up, with the help of writer Amy Zamarripa Solis and acclaimed visual artists Larry Achiapong and David Blandy. You will explore a variety of mediums including oral history, film, drawing, writing, and other visual arts and literature. Artist Aikaterini Gegisian will create a film about your life and memories.
You will have a chance to share your memories and stories at a sharing later as part of Black History Month. You will also have a chance to share your story on our project website.
While this workshop is primarily aimed at anyone from the diaspora communities, it is open to anyone who feels displaced from their childhood home.
Maximum 20 places, first come first served, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
