Workshop@PAM: Object Stories: A Writing Workshop with Narrated Objects inspired by Searching for Home: Stories of Displacement and Survival 

 

Saturday, August 17, 10:30 AM-12:30 PM

 

Explore the power of objects. Objects, like people, can tell you where they come from, can evoke emotion, and tell stories of love, loss, displacement, struggle, and so much more.

 

Join Andrea Richards from creative collective Narrated Objects as she guides participants through writing and meditation exercises aimed at unlocking the storytelling potential within our cherished possessions. Participants are encouraged to bring an object of personal significance, one that holds a special attachment.

 

Refreshments provided.

 

Rsvp Required

 

 

More about the exhibition:

In Humaira Abid’s exquisitely haunting exhibition Searching for Home, the artist’s sculpted wooden creations invoke the troubling specter of the global refugee crisis and its trails of ruined lives. Inspired by real accounts of displaced people- all personally researched and documented by Abid- the exhibition hints at untold tragedies surrounding the collateral victims of persecution, political conflicts, ethnic cleansing, and natural disasters, a disproportionate number of whom are women and girls. Through her chosen medium of wood, Abid unleashes the innate properties of the material to suggest the ineffable weight and gravity of this continuing humanitarian crisis.

 

This program is free with the cost of admission (Admission to the museum is $15 and can be paid upon arrival at our Visitor Services Desk. More information about our admission rates can be found here)
