Related to the Covid-10 Pandemic, El Coletivo Macondo is working Virtually by Zoom. We miss our work with our teachers in person in their family studios. In the meantime, they will be offering us workshops by Zoom. We also welcome our teacher Morgan Phillips-Spotts who will be teaching Theatrical Improvisation classes virtually as well.

2021 Workshops

Expressive Arts Genealogy Workshop Series- Beginning on February 28, 2021

In this series of workshops we will explore family stories, engage in genealogical research, and explore research sources that help us learn about our ancestors' Creative and Expressive practices. To document this journey, we will make a Creative and Expressive Ancestral Map (similar to a genogram or a family tree) as a way to document what we have learned. We will meet by Zoom together as a group once each month for 2 1/2 hour sessions during four consecutive months: There will also be two optional two hour open studio sessions each month.
