Event Description:

We all agree Air Quality is important. Why is it important to you?

Join us for our Air Quality series.
This is not a class where you will write for three hours. This is a collaborative workshop about our experiences. We will process our personal narratives through writing to create community voice. This is a discourse involving voices from different communities about air quality and what it translates to in our lives.
We will record our thoughts in storyboard, podcast, interviews, journals, testimony we may even draw or dance if we are moved to do so; this is a process of expression.

Nkenna Onwuzuruoha will facilitate writing a process for the busy life.

Registration is mandatory to attend. Questions? Contact Mona@accessart.org

There is a $30.00 fee for this 4 week workshop.

Nkenna Onwuzuruoha (Kenna) is a first year PhD student in Rhetoric and Composition at the University of Utah. She has taught English courses and courses on social justice at the U, Salt Lake Community College, and Westminster College. She moved to Salt Lake over 7.5 years ago as an Americorps VISTA for the SLCC Community Writing Center and currently works as the Outreach Coordinator for Write Here, Westminster College’s community writing center that provides free writing assistance to people and organizations in South Salt Lake.

Kenna facilitated two book groups for Art Access in 2017: The Shadow of the Hummingbird and Things I Should Have Told My Daughter: Lies, Lessons & Love Affairs. She is excited to continue a partnership with Art Access by facilitating a 4-part workshop series on air quality. As an avid, yearlong cyclist (just a commuter who loves the occasional group ride—nothing too competitive!) Kenna is looking forward to working with community members on writing and composing in a way that has their voices heard on the issue of air quality and other environmental issues affecting the Salt Lake Valley.
