Illustration Workshop – In Times of Pandemic

Local LGBT+ activist and artist Edin Solis created the workshop “In Times of Pandemic! Illustration, Autobiography and Community Healing” as a way to bring LGBT+ folks in the border region together in a space of reflection and creativity. Edin has designed several workshops for Casa Arcoíris residents, often using artistic mediums to approach and interact with ideas of identity, justice, and healing.

As described in the workshop flyer, “We don’t need to know how to draw to begin to construct history. From ourselves to the future generations, ‘We have always been here!'”
