Writing Workshop: Using 'Encanto' as Analysis for Healing

Main Building

One College Drive
Lake Tahoe Community College
South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

In this fun, thoughtful and free workshop, we'll use the Pixar film Encanto and its main characters as the basis for exploring intergenerational trauma and its effects. Guided by the works of bell hooks, Resmaa Menakem and Gloria Anzaldua, participants in this workshop will explore the power of children's media to heal collectively. Takes place Tuesday, Nov. 15 from 5pm-7pm in Room A250 on the second floor of the Main Building. All are welcome! Presented by Jes Norman and Jazmin Munoz from Princeton University's Office of Diversity and Inclusion/Campus Life.

The film Encanto centers on a Colombian family, the Madrigals, and family member Mirabel. She's the one member of the family who was not given an ancestral magical gift - or is that really true? We'll discuss Mirabel's journey as she discovers the true power she's had all along - breaking down those cycles of intergenerational trauma to bring healing to her family.
