Trans.lation Social Gatherings
Trans.lation Social Gatherings offers community leaders, residents, and artists the opportunity to come together to identify ways to work together on workshops and set forth a vision for the Trans.lation Pop-up Market. Periodically, Meet and Greets and Lucky Pots are organized as social gatherings. In addition to bringing diverse groups together for dialogue, these social gatherings also highlights the diversity of cuisine in the neighborhood with residents providing the food.
Trans.lation Workshops (June, July, and August)
Trans.lation workshops build upon existing cross-cultural gatherings taking place in the neighborhood and support the creation of products that capture the richness of these interactions to self-reflect and share with the broader public. Trans.lation workshops are operating as a summer institute focusing on dance, music, and performing and visual arts. The workshops are held in clubhouses and nonprofits throughout the neighborhood as a vehicle for encouraging residents to explore and learn about different parts of the neighborhood (outside of their given apartment complexes). Trans.lation workshops are taught by artists from both within and outside of the neighborhood. Artists leading the workshops are identifying residents who are already self-proclaimed artists while encouraging others to explore their creative talents.
