Wait what's happening?
RHI Works will employ 10 young adults to further the work of the public safety Committee, design youth-centered public safety programs, create an inventory of resources for returning citizens, and open opportunities to lift young adult voices in formal community/ civic spaces, all with a lens of reducing police violence. This will be a two-year project slated to begin in December 2020. Organizers will work 15 hours per week. An additional 20 will be hired for the 2022 year. The group will begin meeting in April 2021.

We all have creative ideas that we’re excited about but can’t seem to get started on. With all the stress that 2020 brought, it’s been especially difficult for many of us to connect with our creative sides. This workshop, led by Alumni Resident ann haeyoung, will be a gentle reconnection with, or introduction to, your creative practice through a series of community building exercises. A supportive creative network is the foundation of a sustainable practice. With that in mind, we’ll discuss myths around productivity and the lone artist, look at what’s stopping us from getting started, and see how we might use collective accountability and uplift to manifest our projects. After the workshop, participants will be invited to a private are.na channel to share project updates and encourage continued commitment to our creative practices.
