Event poster for The Shape of Me: re-imagining family

Saturday, 22 October 2022 | 14:00 to 17:00 EDT | Room 207, Accolade East Building, York University

A three-hour story workshop unpacking family history through play, featuring mask painting, music and food, and community. To make it more fun, you may bring a favourite family photograph with you!

Filmmaker and Story Workshop Facilitator, Shabnam Sukhdev will lead you through the engaging process of mask painting and improvisational performance.

In the workshop, food and conversation will become important channels of connecting with other participants, unraveling what family means to each of us.

This workshop is presented with support from Theatre and Performance Studies and the York Centre for Asian Research at York University.
