Speaking with Ghosts: A hybrid conversation/workshop with Laraine Herring and Janice Lee
Saturday June 18th, 2022 12PM-3PM PST over Zoom
Join Janice Lee (Imagine a Death) and Laraine Herring (A Constellation of Ghosts: A Speculative Memoir with Ravens) in a dynamic exploration of the things that haunt us. Following a short conversation about each of the presenter’s books, Lee’s workshop, “Speaking with Ghosts” and Herring’s workshop, “Speculative Memoir: Making the Invisible Visible” will help you connect with the unseen, the imagined, and the ancestors to create your unique story. There will be ample time for sharing and questions.
The following payment model is inspired by and borrowed from the payment model of Bayo Akomolafe’s class, We Will Dance With Mountains: Into the Cracks.
This workshop offers a sliding scale based on your relative financial standing. In an effort to reflect disparity in economic condition and access to wealth, the following payment system is designed for those with more wealth to help cover the costs of those with less access to wealth and resources. We trust your discernment of your current financial situation and how you fit into the global economic context.
As you decide what amount to pay, please consider your present-day financial situation governed by income, but also the following factors: historical discrimination faced by your peoples; your financial wealth (retirement/savings/investments); your access to income and financial wealth, both current and anticipated (how easily could you earn more income compared to other people in your community, country, and the world; are you expecting an inheritance); people counting on your financial livelihood including dependents and community members; the socio-economic conditions of your locale (relative to other places in your country and in the world); your relationship to food & resource scarcity.
- $150 (Note: This amount reflects the “real” value of this course.)
Scholarships are also still available for anyone needing further financial assistance. Please email Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info, or if you are feeling challenged in any way by the financial requirements of participation.
