Writing Our Own Love Letters
Writing love letters to ourselves allows us to create safer spaces to be honest and vulnerable in our artistic practice - and to offer ourselves love, care and support. Artists will learn some of the science behind positive self-talk and gain skills for writing their love letters. The workshop will have space for self-reflection and boundaried sharing to help foster community care along with self-care.
This Artist Education workshop series invites artists on the edge of culture to teach their peers about the personal and professional skills theyve developed to thrive on the margins. The program a unique collaboration between Patricks Cabaret, Pangea World Theater, and Soo Visual Arts Center is intended to create collaborative space for artists to share their skills with fellow artists and organizers, to strengthen relationships and build resilience, and to provide opportunities for artists to put their knowledges to work.
This workshop will be led by Tori Hong, a queer, non-binary, 2nd generation Hmong and Korean American visual artist based in Minneapolis. Throughout their work, they weave their experiences with and knowledge of personal and inter-generational healing in order to create healthier, more powerful communities. They also have two cats.
