Workshop: ReMember: Collage with Kai Margarida-Ramírez 

La Danza de Nuestro Mestizaje Cropped

Sunday, October 14

Fee: $60 / $50 members  
Register: 505-242-1445,

This hands-on artmaking workshop utilizes the medium of collage to help us connect to our families, histories and ancestral homes. Family and home are the building blocks to our identities, how we first develop a sense of self, but we as individuals are the products of many overlapping influences. How can we use collage to create an image reflecting that? Alternatively, how can we use collage to connect to a family one has never met or a homeland one has never visited? How can we collage to connect with what is not familiar to us? Where do we stand within our family histories? Participants are encouraged to bring in photocopies of photos, maps, drawings, sheet music, poetry, buttons and other ephemera.
