Event description
The Bronx Memoir Project is starting up again in person!

About this event

Led by Trace DePass, Tesseract of Memory is a 4-week workshop excavation of what is still here and what is no longer here for us. Participants will question how memory might be a four-dimensional, tangible object we choose to carry. And also reflect on how we are entangled in a lineage of couriers alongside our ancestors and children. The workshop will introduce several forms and styles of writing to see which ones best serve as containers for our memories!

*NOTE* Due to the Key to NYC mandate, all in-person participants will need to show proof of vaccination. You can view more about the mandate here. Attendance is limited.

Workshop Schedule:

Thursday, September 16th from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Thursday, September 23rd from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Thursday, September 30th from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Thursday, October 7th from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Organizer Bronx Council on the Arts

Organizer of BMP | Tesseract of Memory

Founded by visionary community leaders in 1962, The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is a pioneer in advancing cultural equity in The Bronx. From our early beginnings as a presenter of affordable arts programming in select Bronx neighborhoods, we have grown into a cultural hub that serves the entire creative ecosystem of the borough.  Our programs serve artists, the public, and the field at large by building connections, providing resources, and advocating for equitable practices. Then as now, we focus on supporting the work of underrepresented groups – especially artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Through this lens we offer affordable programs for seniors and youth, and provide direct services to over 1,000 artists and 250 community-based arts groups each year.
