We Are All Monsters: Reclaiming Our Self Recreations
October 31, 2020 / 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
If society defines anything that is “other” as “monstrous”, what does that mean for those of us who cannot hide how “other” we are? What does it mean to be a monster, and how can we reclaim the power that comes with that?
If you’d like some tricks AND treats this Halloween, then join us for “We Are All Monsters: Reclaiming our Self Re-Creations”, an interactive arts-based workshop that focuses on discussions about identities, finding strength by confronting and changing the narratives that society prescribes us, and building solidarity with other monsters.

A little bit about our facilitator:
MXKO, also known as Dany, creates many things–drawings, designs, zines, logos, characters, cosplay, music, stories and more. They are a diasporic Filipino/Chinese queer deaf person who focuses on creation and storytelling as a way of connecting to, building, and reimagining community. Recently, they have been leading workshops and discussions on topics such as intersectionality, reimagining identity, storytelling as healing, and Queer Asian pride / solidarity with other movements. You can check them out at http://mxkocreates.art.blog/, on Instagram (@mxkocreates), or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are currently open for commissions and bookings in leading workshops / discussions.
