How to Cure a Ghost: The Power of Vulnerability in Creative Expression
Led by esteemed poet Fariha Róisín, this workshop will explore the transformative power of vulnerability in creative expression, using Fariha's book "How To Cure A Ghost" as a tool. The hour-long session will consist of three parts centered on three important questions:
First - What is Vulnerability?
Second - Why is it a useful resource in our lives for creativity, and healing?
Third - How can we start adapting our experiences to create strong, important work that will have an impact on the world?
Fariha writes on Muslim identity, race, self-care, pop culture, and film (as well as queerness and how that intersects with being a femme of color navigating a white world), and has written for The New York Times, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Vice, them, Fusion, Village Voice and others. She has a poetry book entitled "How To Cure A Ghost" that came out this year as well as a journal on femme/non-binary body empowerment called "Being In Your Body". She's also working on her first novel, entitled "Like A Bird," to be out in Fall 2020. For more info, visit her website https://www.fariharoisin.com/.
