Post-Election Virtual Gathering

Post-Election Virtual Gathering
Dates: Thursday, Nov 5, 2020
Time: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

This has been an unpredictable, exhausting time for all of us. There is an overwhelming sense of uncertainty amplified by the pandemic, and yet a growing social movement offers glimmers of hope and inspiration. Whatever Tuesday's results may be, we recognize that being present for each other in a creative environment will be necessary. We invite the Armory community to join us for a lightly moderated hour of sharing, listening, and being present with Armory community members.

The hour will begin with a drawing exercise from Armory Teaching Artist Jocelyn Casas she hopes will help you start "thinking about self care as a revolutionary act in times of uncertainty."
