Art as Advocacy Workshop Nov. 28

Join Zero Hour Arkansas at 2:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 28, in the Multicultural Center for an Art as Advocacy workshop. Through conversation, poetry and collage crafting, participants will create pieces that reflect different experiences, concerns or hopes. The event will feature local artists and poets such as Reeya Gandhi. Attendees will have the option to have their art published in Zero Hour Arkansas' Roots magazine.

"Poems of Protest and Empowerment" is a community-driven environmental justice event. This intimate event combines art with activism to hold space and create accessible, joyful and educational experiences for people with intersectional identities to find community and learn about creative justice.
