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 boundaries sharing to help foster community care along with self-care. This workshop centers and uplifts LGBTQ Indigenous artists and artists of color - artists who are frequently marginalized and/or exoticized in their personal and artistic lives.
The Artist-Facilitator's intentions are: the space will be majority LGBTQ Indigenous peoples and people of color; topics such as allyship will not be addressed; racism, homophobia, and/or transphobia will not be allowed; and LGBTQ IPOC participation will be prioritized. If you are wondering if this workshop is right for you, please reach out to the Artist-Faciltator, Tori Hong at email@example.com.
Tori Hong is 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.
