We'll move beyond prejudiced confines and stereotypes pertaining to sexual orientation, gender, politics, religion, and cultural identity toward a multi-ethnic and cross-cultural approach to memoir writing as a visual and written narrative, as a dynamic record of our ancestry, and as a catalyst for personal transformation. This is a multi-disciplinary approach to deconstructing and reconstructing identiy based on our own personal narratives.

We'll explore who we are through our past and present by engaging in the creation of oral narratives, which will be recorded, memoir essays, fictional memoirs, photography, and collage.

Participants will bring cameras or camera phones, family photos, recollections of songs they like, and cutouts that speak to them because of color, texture, memories, nostalgia or simply subliminal identification. Come prepared to move around and participate.
