'Varied Definitions for Youth: A Study of Color'
24th September 2022
We invite you to join the Walker Art Center’s Youth and Community Programs Associate, Simona Zappas, in an interactive virtual workshop exploring the personal, cultural, universal symbolic meanings of color. Workshop will be followed by a short presentation on building community in youth led spaces. She wishes to lead the group in a reflection on how the definition of words changes depending on the space they’re used in and how this contributes to her work in building community with youth, ultimately coming to the point that colors can have different meanings.
