FabLab 2021-2022

Community Partnership

FabLab  provides a vital space for QTBIPOC culture bearers to conjure and celebrate the legacies of our queer ancestors through a series of monthly creative playshops igniting a fabulous re-telling of queer history facilitated by the fiercest QTBIPOC creative voices. Facilitators introduce participants to queer ancestors as inspiration for the creation of fresh new work exploring dance, performance, visual art, video, music,  and spoken word.  

Participants help us introduce these ancestors to a wider audience with creative projects that weave their inspiring histories back into community consciousness. Participants are invited to share their inspired creations on social media and tag us @eyezenpresent and #FabLab. Participants will also share their ancestor inspired art at two Celebration of Life events in honor of the highlighted ancestors.
