Contando Mis Historias: A Workshop in Storytelling for Latinas

Join Latina Mothers Collaborative as we explore storytelling and self expression through photography, writing and art. This will be an intimate space meant to see, hear, and hold space for Latinx women. 

You will be asked to bring an object that holds sentimental value to you. Using this object, Carolina Adame will walk you through exercises that will allow you to use either your phone or a DSLR to photograph your piece in various natural light environments, all the while processing how this piece holds a part of your story. 

Next, you will learn as Dr. Renee Lemus Elisaldez walks you through a series of writing prompts in order to bring life to the story behind the object you photographed. 

Finally Dr. Cristina Rose Smith will facilitate an art meditation on the light and dark in our chosen object and the connection to our story.  

Each participant will receive a swag bag along with ONE raffle ticket for our raffle. Additional raffle tickets for sale at event, CASH ONLY. 

We will have an optional Comadre Hour from 5-6pm to enjoy each other's company, share our thoughts, and get to know you more! We are looking forward to you presence and energy.

**Note** If unable to attend, there are NO REFUNDS or swag bag giveaways. However you can transefer your ticket to someone with email notice up to 24hrs in advance only.
