Join artist Kate Gilbert in a participatory workshop series infusing tools of meditation with media awareness to raise awareness of contemporary issues and inspire change. This workshop will begin with guided meditation focused on loving those who are difficult to embrace and emphasizes community. Once centered, participants will gather to execute a civically engaged creative action using the artifacts created in previous workshops.

This third and final workshop in the series will lead participants through the acceptance of violent imagery in media as a necessary catalyst for change, defining one’s response to violence and will culminate in a civically-engaged creative action.

About the Artist:

Kate Gilbert is an artist deeply committed to developing catalytic artistic practices for transformation — of our cities, our relationships, and ourselves. In her artwork, curatorial projects and public art organization Now + There she strives to facilitate joy, spontaneity and an intersectional approach to creating shared cultural experiences.

Lunch will be served.

This event is free and open to the general public. RSVP required. Please register using the Eventbrite link attached under "Event Website."
