Starting Febuary 1st VisArts is requiring everyone attending an onsite program to upload an image of their vaccination card when registering.

During Hannah Brancato’s exhibition Inheritance of White Silence, this experiential, healing, anti-racism workshop offers an arts-based excavation into family systems to examine the following questions:

  • What are we talking about when we say “white supremacy culture?”
  • As people living in a racist society, how have we inherited and internalized white supremacy culture and/or how have we been impacted by its legacy?
  • How do family narratives and other inherited stories perpetuate internalized racism?
  • How can we resist this legacy in our spheres of influence and families, through connecting with existing antiracist movement building and community action?

The two-part workshop features discussion and a series of guided prompts to help participants explore these questions, as well as time to share and respond to one another’s art and to brainstorm how to translate this interior work into exterior action. This space is designed for anyone, from beginning artists to more experienced artists, and we will emphasize a beginner’s mindset as we experiment together.

This is a two-part workshop, the first part of the workshop will take place in the VisArts Gibbs Street Gallery on Feb. 19 from 1 – 4 PM. The second part of the workshop will be hosted virtually via ZOOM, on Feb. 26 from 1 – 2:30 PM. All materials will be provided by VisArts and available in the Gibbs Street Gallery on the day of the in person program.
