Hands on the Land
Facilitated by: Tayah Carlisle
Location: Wa Na Wari Community Garden (911 24th Ave Seattle, WA 98122)
With our hands on the land at Wa Na Wari, we will connect with the Earth in reciprocal relationship, gain practical gardening skills, and build community. We will also learn how to disrupt the racist and unjust food system dominant in the U.S. through investing in food sovereignty and access locally. We will honor the legacy of this garden by not only tending to the land, we will also develop skills around plant medicine and create art.
We the Podcasters
Facilitated by: Ms. Lulu Carpenter
Location: Seattle Girls’ School (2706 S Jackson St Seattle, WA 98144)
Oftentimes, people talk about democracy and the writing of the constitution that starts with “We the People.” We want to flip this on its head in the 21st Century as we learn new media and technology tools with “We the Podcasters: A Youth Podcasting 101 Workshop Series.” In this series, you will learn how podcasts build on the history of zines but instead of cutting and pasting paper, we are cutting and pasting audio clips to create stories that are for and by youth. Join the fun this summer and learn the basics of audio engineering and journalism! You will be working with Media Justice advocate and organizer, Ms. Lulu Carpenter from Seattle Girls’ School who is a Performance and Media Arts (PMA) teacher and with KVRU 105.7 FM, a SouthEnd community radio station.
SEW! LET’S SEW!
Facilitated by: Jackie Amatucci
Location: Coyote Central (2300 E Cherry St Seattle, WA 98122)
Bring your curious, creative self to this fun and inspiring class as we explore the basics of learning how to thread and use a sewing machine, cut a garment that you design and embellish clothes that you own. In this class, you will be encouraged and supported in deepening your interest in fashion that is sustainable, educated in where our clothes come from, and practice making a variety of garments you can wear. Sewing machines, thread, scissors and mounds of fabric are yours to experiment and choose from. Jackie Amatucci and support staff are delighted to be offering Sew! Let’s Sew once again for the Create Summer program.
