Curatorial Practices Panel at RISD Museum {Providence, RI}

Presented by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts and the RISD Museum, this panel will feature curators working in diverse situations -- from a large art museum to curating small, independent shows to curating programming and spaces without objects. Come learn what a curator thinks about as they are assembling a show, adding to a collection, and documenting, researching, and interpreting objects and events.

Mary-Kim Arnold will moderate this panel conversation, and it will include a question and answer session. While this event is free with museum admission, registration is required.

Writing Room: A Generative, Collaborative Workshop {Boston, MA}

Loosely modeled on television writers' rooms, this session will engage participants in generating ideas and inspiration for each other. Each participant can bring a premise and a few details for a fiction project, and through lightly facilitated conversation, and writing prompts, we will imagine possibilities for characters, conflict, and plot. We will draw from personal experience and observation, and from the writing (and other art forms) that we love. Participants will leave the session with a rich pool of possibilities and notes to consider as they develop their next project.

For more information and to register, visit GrubStreet.

Baring Threads: Textile-Inspired Performances & Closing Night Celebration {Jamestown, RI}

As part of Con/Textile/ized Exhibition: Fiber is the medium of our lives and memories. Fabric, pattern and texture literally paint our experiences and are in the background of every moment. This makes contemporary textile and fiber based art powerful in a way that allows the artist to push viewers conceptually because the medium is so inherently familiar.

Con/textile/ized presents artists working with textiles and surface design in unique ways as a vehicle to connect intimately with the audience. This show will take the viewer through a transition starting with functional textile work inspired by visual art. Next it will move you to fabric work that references wearable and usable textiles. All culminating with fine art work using fiber and surface as a jumping off point for its visual and conceptual expression.

Writing Workshop as part of Providence Public Library's HairBrained Exhibition {Providence, RI}

As part of the programming for the Providence Public Library 2018 HairBrained Exhibition: Our hair can say a lot about how we see and present ourselves. In this generative writing workshop, we’ll use a series of prompts to write about hair. Whether it’s appreciating our own or that of loved ones, or exploring some facet of our own personal, social, or political history as expressed through hair, we’ll use our time together to write, revise, and share original short texts inspired by and in conversation with the HairBrained exhibit and our own lived experiences.
