From Sharing to Empowering
Celebrate Our Community, One Story at a Time
Clothes and style can be a powerful tool to use and manipulate. However, it can also be something that limits us, something that traps us.
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.
-Who can join the workshop?
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.
-Why this workshop?
The projects we create can help make a difference both within and outside of the community.
