Artists Rizzhel Javier and Diana Cevera are collaborating on a special workshop for the Miracosta College Social Justice and Student Equity Center! Join us in conversations about equity, race, representation, power of the counter-narrative and leave with a homemade toy that reflects who you are and where you came from.


LECTURE: SOCIAL JUSTICE, EQUITY AND IDENTITY

This dynamic lecture and workshop will fuse theatre, spoken word, and dialogue centering identity and the personal narrative as a point of departure. The objective of this workshop is to create a space of plurality where diverse narratives representing many perspectives and corporealities intertwine to serve as counter-narratives to static representations of people and communities.


WORKSHOP: PEOPLE AND PLACES PROJECT

The mission of the People + Places Project is to provide an inclusive space for communities to share stories about who they are and places that they have lived. Draw a picture of yourself, or someone you love, learn how to transfer your image to fabric and turn it into a toy. Each one plays a personalized message that shares a story about who they are or where they have lived.

The program is made possible with funding provided by Miracosta College Social Justice and Student Equity Center.

ABOUT RIZZHEL JAVIER

Rizzhel Javier is a San Diego based artist and educator. Her work explores topics in identity, memory, culture and human relationships. As a first generation Filipino-American, Rizzhel uses her art practice to dissect her identity, and that of the larger Filipino-American community through the research and creation of art projects. Her art is grounded in social practice, with the intent to engage the public and build a dialogue on topics that are often difficult to discuss or understand. For Rizzhel art is a way for people to build communication skills and a sense of community.
