Discovering Delight: Creative Writing Workshop for BIPOC Creatives
Location: RPFF Studios, Daniels Spectrum | 585 Dundas St. E., Toronto, ON
For those of us who identify as Indigenous, Black, and/or people of colour, we are asked all too often to default to our stories of hardships, trauma, and oppression. But we are all of that and so much more. Our stories are beautiful, heartbreaking, uplifting, contradictory, and constantly unfolding. What does it mean to lather ourselves in joy? To indulge ourselves in delight? This writing workshop is an attempt to dip our toes in exactly that. No writing experience necessary!
