Women's Day Sari Art & Poetry Workshop @ Eaton Hotel, Chrystal Room

March 8 is International Women’s Day.  We will be creating climate and food justice saris in solidarity with women farmers of Katakhali Village, Bangladesh.  Please join us for an in person sari art & poetry workshop with Storytelling with Saris. The workshop is led by Monica Jahan Bose. We will be working on poetry and art inspired by plants and urban gardening. Our sari art and poetry will be part of a public art project called SUSTAIN, which will be installed at the Line Hotel DC and Unity Park in June 2022.

Everyone age 15 or older in the DC area who joins at least two workshops will receive a small stipend. We will be holding 4-6 workshops, some of which will be in person and others on Zoom.

Looking forward to seeing you!  In order to allow social distancing and reduce risk of Covid-19 exposure, this workshop is limited to a max of 15 people. You must wear a mask during the workshop. The workshop will be live-streamed and recorded so that more people can be engaged.

ASL interpretation will be provided. Please email with any questions or accommodation needs.

This project is funded the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
