Event Series Event Series: Inheritance Workshop Series

Inheritance Workshop Series

September 22, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


To inherit means to derive characteristics, items, situations, or a predisposition from one’s ancestors. Often, the connotation of inheritance for people of color is generational and negative; there exists tangible disease, illness, trauma, and debt. As queer people of color we are all too familiar with these realities in our communities and in ourselves.

The Inheritance Workshop Series seeks to redirect this concept of generational inheritance as a form of something beautiful and abundant; through past traditions, passions, cultures, and joys. Abundance exists loudly, more so than the negative. Let’s center the things we have accumulated and chosen to hold closely.

This will be a free, three-part workshop series hosted virtually with 5-10 participants. It will consist of writing poetry, experimenting with photography, and then compiling our work into a zine.

The dates for the virtual workshop will be the following Wednesdays: Sept. 15th, Sept. 22nd, and Sept. 29th from 6-8 PM (PST).

Apply to the workshop here,. Send any questions to paz@pdx.edu

This workshop is hosted by 2021 IPRC BIPOC artists in residence Antonia Silva, Mai, David Paz Mendoza, and Maia Vasconez-Taylor.
