Workshop dates:  January 27                                                                                                       Workshop times: 11am-3pm

Workshop description: How can we both speak with and listen to each other about celebrating and working towards Peace in Tallahassee? During this workshop, we will collectively create “peace pods” out of paper mache’ using local and national newspapers, balloons, and other inflatable balls. We will paper mache’ with newspaper to emphasize what is going on in our community and to create a space for the articles we want to read in our paper. While our peace pods are drying, we will create a work (or works) that expands the dialogue about our important topics and expresses the news you would like to see in our local paper. This can be a written article, a drawing, a painting, a collage, a song, or poem (or whatever you craft) that will be put into a peace pod.
