Identity, Power, and Art: March 7th, Know Your Neighborhood

Join artist SPEAKS, RiNo Art District, and RedLine Contemporary Art Center for a program series centered on exploring identity and creating art. This workshop series runs all of 2024 and ends in a group show celebrating the artwork participants create. In this series we aim to deepen and explore our personal connections to our artistic and creative expressions. We also ask questions about how we view and understand ourselves in relation to art. What does it mean to truly“identify” with someone’s artwork? What does it mean to see ourselves in our art?

This workshop series builds. Join us for each workshop to get deeper into your exploration of self and creative practice. The workshop series culminates with a group art show. Drop ins and one-off attendees are very welcome! Participants will be provided with art making materials. Light food and drink will be provided.

March 7th: Know Your Neighborhood—When creating public artwork, how often do we think about where it is going, and how it may represent the community? In order to create a connection to existing neighborhoods we must understand our connection to our own community and home. How does that intersection of our identity help foster new connections to communities we are not from?

Meet SPEAKS—Devin Urioste is born and raised in Denver. His work is influenced by the culture he was raised in and embodies what it means to give his community a voice, and platform to speak from. His work is rooted in graffiti, skateboarding, music, street culture, social justice, and many more. (IG: @goodlooksvol.1)
