“While not all of us are made to handle the sandbox that is our political system, each of us can make a difference in our own way if we want to. One of the best ways to do that is to voice our opinions on the social and environmental issues that impact all of us through creative writing. This creative writing workshop will focus on how to write about different social and environmental justice issues that matter to each of us. Join host Erin J. Bauman at Artspace above Books and Company as she shares her own process to help you maximize the power of your words!
This event is admission by donation on a sliding scale. No one will be turned away, but suggested donation is $20. All proceeds for this event will go to the Unist’ot’en Camp. The Unist’ot’en Camp is the home of some of Canada’s best land defenders, who are setting an example for all Canadians. Some of the camps residents have been living there sustainably for five years. They have also constructed a solar powered healing center to assist First Nations youth from Witset (formerly known as Moricetown) in coping with addiction and mental health issues. As well as money to enhance and maintain the healing center and pay for other costs of running the camp, they need things like: epi pens; hatchets; and whet stones. A list of always needed food and items, and a full listing of needed supplies can be found on the wish list at the Unist’ot’en Camp website @https://unistoten.camp/support-us/wishlist-needslist/. Donated food/items can be dropped off at Studio 2880 at 2880 15th ave between 11am to 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday. You can also contact Erin if you would prefer to have your items picked up, at (250)-613-3778 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to thank Books and Company and Studio 2880 for helping us to make this event possible.”
