Installation, Food, Film and Workshop with Aliah Lavonne Tigh and Friends | Friday June 21 at 7:30pm

Join us Friday, June 21, at 7:30pm at The Residency at 821 for an evening for an open house evening of art and creativity.  Chuck Gutierrez and LimaqWNC will be providing Peruvian vegan light bites. Water is our theme for the night, and we’ll have a short film screening, a community poetry writing workshop, and a sneak peek at an immersive art installation centered around water.

This evening will begin with Dogwood Fellow Tiffany Womack’s 20 minute film, What About the Water, exploring the role of riparian forests in purifying and protecting our water supply and the community protectors of this water. We’ll then do a writing exercise that will guide community members to write their own poetry reflecting on water. The studio will feature a digital installation by Liz Williams, Mik Mitchell, and Shani Kashani. We will also have poem excerpts and art by 821 Artist in Residence, Aliah Lavonne Tigh, on the walls.
