A breaking and making mosaic project led by Susan Parenti, School for Designing a Society. Please bring something to break (i.e. a cup, saucer, glass, etc.), a plastic bag to break it in, an idea for what to create from the shards, and some sturdy vinyl gloves. You can also show up empty handed—we’ll have extras. Mosaics will be on display after the event.

Part of Mad Creative, a series of events looking at bombardments of trauma news about sexual violence and other triggering topics around gender and power—organized by the Initiative in Holocaust, Genocide, Memory Studies and the YWCA, The Women’s Resources Center, APO-AA, Women & Gender in Global Perspectives, independent artists and thinkers.
