Making Rituals is back!
Making Rituals is a personal and collective inquiry into modern ritual that I host, created with the intention of gathering together to spark conversation around our lives and reframing ritual as essential to our survival and connection to the world—for ourselves, for our children, for our ancestors, for our planet.
The theme for the November and December events is How to Speak to the Dead, and will explore themes I'm working on in my project En la casa de Mamá.
For November 13th I welcome director, artist, dancer, and producer Robyn Mineko Williams as guest artist, and we will speak about her work, Hisako's House.
This event is free and open to the public but RSVP is required—attendance will be limited to encourage in-depth discussion. It will not be live-streamed. Light snacks will be served.
