Lake Street Arts! 2023 Workshops
You Are Here—Hidden Histories
Throughout the year we are offering a variety of spaces for people to come together and tell their own Hidden Histories—personal, political. dreamscapes. We will put people, and all their epic beauty and sorrow, at the center of the telling of where we are and where we have been and where we want to go.
These poems, images, stories, art works, songs and dances will be gathered and woven into a large-scale timeline/map that will be displayed along Lake Street and available as a print. The celebration for the 2023 Lakes Street Arts Season will be at Moon Palace Books on July 15, 2023.
Pottery workshops with Sayge Carroll
Participants joined Mudluk Pottery and Pangea World Theater for a unique workshop to create a hand built clay Ancestor Vessel.
Each participant brought an image of an ancestor to work with. We gathered and shared who/why we brought our particular beloved into the space.
Artist Sayge Caroll of Mudluk Pottery guided us through the process of creating a small vessel. All the vessels were be fired and the images were transferred directly onto vessels by Mudluk Pottery.
Writing Our Memory into Being
Writing workshop with Venus DeMars and Anthony Ceballos
Anthony Ceballos and Venus DeMars invited people into a lively discussion revolving around creative writing and the act of memory recall and excavation. Through workshop discussion, prompts, and a bit of open writing time, participants had the opportunity to write a piece of either creative nonfiction or poetry based in memory.
