Dreams of Hope Presents multiMEdia A sQool workshop and event series
sQool at Dreams of Hope presents multiMEdia, a four-part workshop series surrounding intersectionality and art, led by program manger Cavanaugh Quick and featuring local artist Katie Kaplan (pennysmasher.tumblr.com). The workshop is hosted at Winchester Thurston Upper School in conjunction with their student Gay-Straight Alliance and will culminate in a free and public youth reception on Friday, April 10, at the Winchester Thurston Upper School, 555 Morewood Avenue, in Pittsburgh's Shadyside neighborhood. Over the course of four sessions, students will work with Dreams of Hope teaching artists to engage in critical analysis of art across a range of mediums, including music, prose, and visual pieces. This workshop will focus on the intersection of queerness with other social identities, in an examination of multidimensional systems of privilege and oppression.  Students will work together to create a mixed-media paneled mural in response to their analyses, to be unveiled at the youth reception. For more information about the youth reception, please email cav@dreamsofhope.org.
