Workshop Overview

Author Margaret Atwood once answered the question "Where did you grow up?" with "Which time?" We grow up many times in one life and we grow and change in a place—rooms, houses, cities, countries, landscapes. How have the places in your life shaped you? How have you shaped them? During the pandemic, how has where you've been—or where you haven't been able to go—informed your experience? This generative workshop provides the opportunity to use place as a portal to begin writing these important life stories and to discover their richness in the process. Our time "on screen" will be broken up to allow for resting, walking, and being with ourselves, in place, supported by community.
