Senior Memoir Writing Class with the Museum of Fine Arts
Limited Space Available
In celebration of The Obama Portraits Tour exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, this spring, the Living Witness Workshop for Senior Citizens seeks to highlight our own living icons in the Third Ward community. Over the course of three gatherings, participants will engage in reflective creative writing exercises focused on preserving personal narratives and memories of the people, places, and events that have developed this rich and historical Houston neighborhood over time. Anyone who considers themselves a senior citizen is invited to take part in this free workshop. No prior creative writing experience is necessary, just a passion to share and help preserve great stories.
This workshop series is sponsored by Kindred Stories, Museum of Fine Arts, Emancipation Park Conservancy, and Inprint.
