Can we still walk together during these times of physical isolation? In this workshop, we will use movement and art to imagine multiple ways of going on walks with each other, letting others' eyes and curiosities guide us, and imagining inhabiting others' spaces

For this workshop participants will explore ways to walk together while not being physically together. To explore this, please be sure to have a charged phone/tablet from where you can connect to the meeting and that would last at least 30 minutes unplugged.

LRN (Latinx Resilience Network) began as a collaboration with La Casa Cultural Latina and LLS (Latina/Latino Studies) in Fall 2013 to address the mental health wellness and awareness of Latina/o/x students through trainings, workshops, and courses. LLS Cares began in Fall 2019 as a space for Latina/o/x students and allies to come together to learn and practice self-care and community support through the use of reflection, meditation, processing, and engagement in community building. This year LRN and LLS Cares are coming together as LRN Cares with LLS to continue to build community and support for Latina/o/x students, staff and the larger Champaign-Urbana community.
