City Stories Workshop - Pens & Pizza
Please join us for our monthly free writing workshop - Instructor: Daphne Gottlieb - Pens and Pizza will be provided
Session 1 Dates:
Nov. 20 @ 6pm
Dec. 11 @ 6pm
Jan. 14 @ 2pm
Words can give us a home when we need more of one. Words let us build a home, shape us, and let us know our own histories. Our words can be a map to help us find ourselves, a rope to pull us back from the edge of the world.
Join us for three sessions of writing about who we are, where we’ve been, and who we could be. We’ll be writing poems, stories, letters, autobiography or anything we want as we follow each other in a trail of ink.
And then eat pizza.
Who Should Take This Workshop:
This workshop is for people. This workshop is for people with housing and/or food insecurity; people who have or are living in supportive housing, shelters, navigation centers, or outside; people with limited and fixed incomes; and anyone who needs to tell their story. In other words, please come if you feel broke or broken. Advanced sign-up is good. Drop-in is fine. Notebooks and pens will be provided. People who attend all three workshops will receive a certificate of completion and a surprise. Sign up. Come to one class or all three.
Central Market NOW is inspired by the success of 24 days of Central Market Arts, a public art festival that happened in 2010-2012 centralmarketarts.org. We are in the process of re-envisioning the programming to make it more of an ongoing, community-driven endeavor. The project is currently being managed through SF Creative Writing Institute under the sponsorship of SAFEhouse (Saving Art From Extinction) for the Performing Arts.
SAFEhouse Arts is the home of RAW, SPF, West Wave Dance Festival, and the AIRspace queer performing artists residency program.
In 2012, SAFEhouse Arts was honored to receive the GOLDIE award from the SF Bay Guardian, as well as the Best of the Bay.
