Writing a Letter to your Immigrant Self
August 7th, 1:00 - 2:00 PM
Led by: Alejandro Rizzo Nervo & denirée isabel

Using an interactive game-like approach, together we retrace our past selves as we journey back through time in the form of writing. We ask you to reflect on when you immigrated to your current home and the relationships you’ve developed between here and there, now and then while acknowledging the uprooting that occurs when relocating.

Creating a Portable Memorial

August 18th, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Led by: Camila Salcedo & Cecilia Salcedo

A sensory workshop through which we engage the five senses to remember family members far away, or no longer with us. We will build our own sensory memory boxes via a series of activities from creating a digital collage to recreating objects with play dough, so that we can return to them whenever we are missing our loved ones.
