Aanmitaagzi is back with another series of community-engaged workshops for the 2023 Fall & Winter season! The workshops are part of our current project, ALL MY R(el)ATIONS, which explores and examines the themes of relationality and resource capacity/scarcity. Through them we will be gathering, creating, and developing stories, installation materials, and performance pieces that will feed into the larger project and future presentations.
The workshops are free to attend and no experience is necessary. All ages are welcome except where noted.
