The Artist as Storyteller Speaker Series, supported by the Seattle Colleges Performing Arts Fund, welcomes BIPOC artists, performers, and activists to share their work and connect with students and community members about what it means to be an artist in today’s social and cultural climate. The series emphasizes the artmaking and storytelling process as it relates to the individual and community.
In this conversation, we’ll talk with Nishimura about how art can create deep connections and awakenings through the excavation of darkness. We will explore how telling stories strives to reveal hidden beauty, confront demons, and ultimately find healing.
This conversation is the second in a series of six speaking events. For more information and to view a complete list of upcoming speakers, visit us at artistasstoryteller.com.
