The Lives We Left, The Lives We Live

February 23, 2019
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Participants are invited to actively engage in creative writing, storytelling, visual explorations, and meaningful discussions related to their own cultures as well as those from the immigrant experience. Students will receive a personal journal for recording their perspectives, revelations and recollections. No experience is necessary

Sepha, the main character in the Big Read title, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears, has constant challenges around his identity, and struggles to arrive at sense of who he is in the midst of his changing circumstances. This same struggle is one residents at the Anne Douglas Center can connect with as they examine the various identities they may have had to assume on their path to the center. Workshop participants are provided opportunities for creative explorations of who they were in the past, and who they are now without its trappings, tragedies and traumas. They can begin to use these perspectives to carve out what identities they may strive for in the future.

Dorothy Randall Gray is a former Poet-in-Residence at Hunter College, NYU faculty member and National Public Radio commentator. Dorothy is also an award winning jewelry designer, certified life coach, and co-founder of Women Writers and Artists Matrix.

The Los Angeles Mission’s Women outreach was named the Anne Douglas Center for Women in recognition of Mrs. Kirk Douglas’ long-standing compassionate generosity to the homeless.  The Los Angeles Mission exists to provide help, hope and opportunity to men, women and children in need.

‘Blissful Introspection’ by Komla Letsu Phillip

This solo show by Komla Letsu Phillip is a collective of acrylic canvases painted by the artist in his studio in Ho, Ghana. In his first solo presentation, Komla promotes genuine acceptance of oneself. In a world where we are constantly stimulated, Komla uses his work to express what silence makes him feel. The works depict figures in lively settings with distinctive blue eyes that subliminally signify mental peace.
