Event description

Description

In collaboration with Creative Community at Hairpin Arts Center, Ada Cheng is very excited to present this interactive workshop and conversation on toxic masculinity.

Through mini-presentations, critical dialogues, and video clips, We will examine the following issues:

I. What is toxic masculinity?
II. Why is it important to examine it under the current sociopolitical climate?
III. Where does it all start and how does it manifest itself?
IV. How does it affect all of us?
V. How can individual and collective changes take place?

Creative Community is a series of classes and workshops that explore creativity, community building, and self care. CC takes the lens that we are all Life Artists: simply by being human we are inherently creative creatures whose palette is the choices we make, and whose Life is our greatest work of Art. These classes and workshops will give the community opportunities to learn new skills, create healthy practices, and explore our creativity. Classes are taught by members of the community, artists, and organizations who have skills to share - some are formally trained, others are self-taught in their field.

This is a FREE workshop, but please know that financial contributions are greatly appreciated and keep this kind of programming alive. Donations will be accepted the day of the event by cash or card. Please consider what you can contribute.


PLEASE RSVP on Eventbrite, so we know how many people to expect. Seats are limited, so RSVP today!
