A day late and a dollar short | Class Intersection: Education
Join Assembly artist Raven Stubbs for a series of ethnodramatic workshops and seated brunches focused on the role of class within Black life and community. For this brunch workshop Stubbs will lead a discussion on education as a lens and intersecting point of Blackness and class.
Stubbs’s project engages the difficulty of discussing and examining how class operates within the Black community. These workshops attempt to see if class can be disentangled from other forms oppression by identifying and unpacking how four intersections of Blackness and class operate within Black identity.
Over the course of four discussions on education, identity expression (gender, etc.), assets, and socialization, Stubbs will work with Recess Assembly participants, invited facilitators, and the public to foster dialogue and inquiry around the complex intersections of Blackness and class. Drawing upon the language that emerges during the four sessions, Stubbs’s project will culminate in the creation of an ethnodramatic reading presented at the conclusion of the project. This series is organized as part of A day late and a dollar short a Recess Assembly project by Raven Stubbs.
Workshop session will be audio recorded and meals will be provided. Please notify Recess at aW5mbyB8IHJlY2Vzc2FydCAhIG9yZw== if you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions. Workshop meals will be intra-racial dialogues between Black identified guests. If you do not identify as Black we invite you to engage the project in other ways through a studio visit or attending our culminating reception. Due to limited seating capacity we ask that attendees only register if they are certain that they can attend.
