Re-Writing the Future: Fanfiction for Social Justice @ Central

fanfiction workshop participants
May 13, 2018 - 1:00pm-4:00pm (ended)


Back by popular demand! Do you love science fiction and fantasy -- but not the tired old tropes, about "damsels in distress" and "savage dark-skinned aliens"? Are you ready for a story in which your favorite characters roll up their sleeves and smash the system, like you know they want to? Stop waiting and (re-)write it yourself! Bring your imaginations and your pens to this deeply interactive storytelling workshop, in which we'll tear apart our favorite guilty-pleasure far-off worlds; we'll keep what works and rebuild the rest, focusing on how race, gender and inequality are portrayed. And, in the process, we'll use our stories to reimagine the narrative in our own neighborhoods. Led by racial equity trainers and working artists Tammy Johnson and Channing Kennedy of Art/Work Practice, LLC.

Open for all ages!

At the Central Community Meeting room, 3rd floor, 1-4 pm
