Celebrate Our Community, One Story at a Time

Two Weekend Workshop

From Sharing to Empowering

With Lanny Xiuzhu Li

This workshop centers on people who identify as gender minorities ( queer, trans, etc.), BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of color) and other marginalized bodies, but it also welcomes anyone who is open to or interested in socially engaged visual storytelling.

Stories have magic power. They can open our mind, lift our spirit, and sometimes even amplify the voice of a whole marginalized community. This two-weekend workshop led by Lanny Xiuzhu Li offers an opportunity for people to understand the value of their personal experiences and discover the potential of visual storytelling. Using their multimedia platform ‘every wardrobe an IDENTITY’ as a model, Lanny invites students to explore different ways of storytelling and create engaging narratives of their own through photos, videos, and other possible media.

When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.

    Visual storytelling combines the narrative text of a story with creative elements to augment and enhance the traditional storytelling process. By design, it is a co-creative process resulting in an intimate, interpretive, expressive technique.
