All ages welcome.
In this family activity we will explore what plants have to teach us about migration, borders and our diverse identities utilizing a cyanotype photographic process. We will use cuttings of native and non-native plants of the West Coast to creatively engage in this conversation. Participants will learn the basics of the cyanotype process, the history and usage of these plants and then apply their understanding to create an image reflective of their own family histories and legacies on to a 6 inch photosensitive fabric.
Lion’s Tooth Project inspires immigrant, queer, trans and BIPOC youth to have more agency around their personal stories, healing, and wellness through photography and earth medicine. We believe in the healing power of community, story-telling, story-keeping, and connection to the earth. We center the voices of QTBIPOC youth by connecting in our legacy, joy, and experiences as a tool for liberation.
Offering year-round intentional and youth-led programming we encourage young people to explore / honor their identities, understand the world around them, build leadership skills, and define what wellness and healing mean for them.
