Speculative Visual Storytelling

-
Hybrid/ Zoom + Milstein 103

This year, the Digital Humanities Center is bringing back our monthly learning community on Speculative Technologies for Liberatory Worlds to build capacity for what adrienne maree brown calls “radical imagination,” where “all efforts to bend the arc of the future towards justice, is science fictional behavior.” Come build community with students, staff, and faculty and explore imaginative possibilities through hands-on activities, critical play games, and more.

In this third session, we’ll be playing with the Personal Storytelling Tool #1, a card deck created by Oneika Russell, a Jamaican multi-media artist. This card deck was designed as a tool for social engagement and self-inquiry and comes from a video work "Voyage," which was also created to think about individual awareness and consciousness in relation to history, ecology, and spirituality. Please join us as we use this tool to build connections, self-reflect, pathwork, and more! Absolutely no experience with technology is needed. This session will be hosted in collaboration with featured artist Oneika Russell.
