De-Canon: A Visibility Project (WORKSHOPS)

12PM: Writing Workshop by Neil Aitken and [TBD]

3PM: An Unlearning Talk with Béalleka (The Unlearning Podcast)

De-Canon: A Visibility Project is a pop-up library and web resource project that showcases literary art by writers/artists of color. Our goal is to put forth an alternative literary “canon” — or multiple canons — that are inclusive, diverse, and multi-storied in their approach to representation.

What lies beyond/under/within language for you?

Throughout the month of August, we will investigate this question with a curation of four primary performance events showcasing local writers and artists of color. Four “modes” of embodied expression will provide framework for this series of events.

The library space will also be available for discussion and literary/art workshop sessions for POC groups. Visitors will be encouraged to browse and experience this exhibit at their own pace during open hours.
