Writing a Letter to your Immigrant Self

August 7 @ 1:00 PM 2:30 PM

Led by: Alejandro Rizzo Nervo & denirée isabel

Using an interactive game-like approach, together we retrace our past selves as we journey back through time in the form of writing. We ask you to reflect on when you immigrated to your current home and the relationships you’ve developed between here and there, now and then while acknowledging the uprooting that occurs when relocating.

Material kits will be delivered to participants with all the necessary materials for this workshop, including origami paper and writing utensils.

Writing a Letter to your Immigrant Self is part of the communications quad. This quad raises concerns around the problems in our world to do with the ways we communicate with one another on an individual, community and institutional level, and also how we communicate with ourselves.

While workshops are free and open to anyone in Toronto, space is limited and priority will be given to Etobicoke residents, newcomers, immigrants and refugees and people who experience barriers to accessing arts opportunities. All other applicants will be admitted on a first-come basis. Applicants will be notified about admission and receive a Zoom link by 5 days in advance of scheduled workshop dates. Information collected in applications is private and confidential.
