We Are Stardust Teen Workshop
A Workshop celebrating the wisdom and magic of our bodies through creative practice
Teen Workshop (ages 13-18) runs online August 7, 14, and 21 from 3-4:30pm PST.
LGBTQIA+ folks are among the most creative people on this planet, creating realities and reimagining a world from the inside out—not of how things are but to how things could be. We are visionaries. In what has been a time of isolation for so many people, this interactive workshop is a space to connect–to community, ourselves, and to creative curiosity.
We will gather as a vibrant collective of LGBTQIA+ teens who want to nurture their inner artist by creating uplifting and empowering art through exploring and celebrating the diversity, complexity, and beauty of Queer and Gender Expansive bodies. Each workshop series will include two distinct age groups: one for youth and one for adults. Over the course of three 90 minute workshops, we will forge new relationships to creative practice as a tool for personal and collective transformation weaving in culture and spiritual identities. Each workshop is divided into: solo exploration of your creative craft; community connection where we discuss our work as a group; and quiet time for personal reflection. We will be using Jewish texts about the magic of the body as a springboard for exploration.
Everyone is welcome. No matter where you are in your body, journey, your identity exploration, creative skill set, or spirituality.
All skill levels and types of artistic expression are welcome including visual art, poetry, music writing, song creation, crayon doodling, glitter arts, collage, and more.

After a life threatening car accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury and living with chronic pain for a sustained period, Reed discovered the incredible power of music creation and song writing in learning how to make peace with their body, find healing, and joy.
