Text & Image workshop with Ethel Brown

Art as a Tool for Change Symposium
March 5, 12-1 PM

In-person, 72 Harbour Drive

How do we view ourselves in relation to our environment? What does it mean to belong, and who gets to decide? In this workshop, led by Ethel Brown, participants will explore how text can be used alongside images to create a visual dialogue in the form of diptychs. Supplies will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring pictures that are meaningful to them.
