A two-day workshop focusing on the construction and deconstruction of Word Pinatas. Through group exercises, participants will identify common threads of tension in their lives and society, collectively selecting a word or phrase to represent those frustrations. Channeling that energy of frustration and hope, on the final day participants will destroy the created symbol as a therapeutic release.
The workshop will introduce participants to various cultural histories, uses of pinatas, including their beginnings in Chinese culture to their popularization in the united states by Latin immigrants. Participants will also explore various healing and releasing rituals. Designed for ages 15 + years.
