Poetry Workshop with OBED - Hearts & Hands: Creativity and Community in Violent Times
Hours: 3:00 – 4:30 PM
MOLAA Art Studio
Luis J. Rodriguez explores how the imagination, creativity, and the arts can help transform communities in turmoil, conflict, or uncertainty. Order is not the next step after chaos—creativity is. For indigenous people, everything in nature is governed by the supreme regenerating principle of the universe, what is called feminine and masculine energies. This is the key binary code of life. However, most don't know that in nature the feminine leads, the masculine follows. In a patriarchal, bottom-line society everything is turned on its head. Luis teaches how this plays out in all aspects of the arts and activism. There is no implementation without imagination.
