Collaging: Grasping at the Roots

By Bok Bar (other events)

Sunday, June 19 2022 2:00 PM 3:50 PM EST

Come conspire and create some transformative visual imagery exploring the act of radical rejuvenation as a liberatory practice. On Juneteenth, this workshop will provide a space for people to mobilize and collaborate through community care and collage. All materials will be provided, expect tender vibes, and wholesome ambiance.

*Inclusive to all genders, sexualities, races, abilities, and religions* 

Doriana Diaz is an artist, memory worker, and archivist rooted in Philadelphia's soulful rhythms.  Her work is an exploration of cultural agency, archival documentation, and rhythms of resistance and expansion. 

Doriana has been facilitating collage workshops across the city for 4 years. She began this journey back in 2018 to help fund a trip to Bahia Brazil to study Black feminist politics. The series continued as each workshop was housed in a Black owned business, starting with The Sable Collective, moving to Franny Lous, and finally Harrietts Bookshop. As these workshops expanded and evolved, she had to reimagine their existence during COVID. Doriana is a recipient of the 2022 Bartol Teaching Artist Micro-grant, which funds will help sustain the consistency of these workshops in the future.


Your ticket doubles as a reservation at Bok Bar from 2pm-3:50pm. Attendees can order food and drink a la carte. This event will be postponed in inclement weather.
