Community Flag Making
Mon, February 24, 2020 4:00 P.M.
Ramonita G. de Rodriguez Library
Around the country there have been protests and movements to end demeaning depictions of Indigenous people, such as mascots and costumes created and used without the consent of those whom they depict. Are there ways in which your neighborhood is depicted or your identity is stereotyped? What do you want people to think of when they think of your community? Join us as we look at flags and banners that show how people choose to represent themselves, reflect on what is meaningful about ourselves and where we live, and design and create our very own flags or emblems.
This workshop is led by Alycia Larson and is inspired by the 2020 One Book, One Philadelphia selection, There There, by Tommy Orange.
