Do not miss this event!
This workshop guides you through a unique writing journey, serving both healing purposes and aiding in the creation of imaginative compositions. The workshop is facilitated by Katti, a writer and creative coach who will introduce her technique, called Writing Tapas. This is a method she developed to make writing easier and yummier by breaking it down into bite-sized chunks. Katti will provide prompts that she utilizes in her own daily writing routine both to nourish her mental health and shape her narratives. The main part of the workshop is for silent, intimate writing by yourself. Additionally, we will have the space to share our writing, feelings and thoughts, but no obligation to share.
All writing levels welcome: from absolute beginners to experienced.

MHAS is happy to be collaborating with Toronto-based arts collective Gendai to bring you this event!
Throughout its 20-year history, Gendai has supported experimental curatorial and organizational practices. Originally founded as Gendai Gallery, the organization created space for East Asian artists and artists of colour.
As the new stewards of Gendai, Marsya Maharani and Petrina Ng are building upon the organization’s legacy of decentering whiteness by investing in the future of BIPOC arts leadership through collective research and practice.
With research interests expanding from issues of decolonization, collective values, working conditions, alternative governance, and radical allyship, Petrina and Marsya are informed by their roles and responsibilities as racialized settlers and uninvited guests working and learning on Turtle Island.
