I’m super excited to be presenting at the Fresh Arts Summit on 7/20. I’m teaching a session titled “Applications 101”, Session F4. Come check out Fresh Arts and all their services for Houston Artists. Register here by 7/14.

About the Summit:

”The Fresh Arts Summit is a 2-day conference offering 20+ skill-building workshops, expert lectures, artist panels + round table discussions, and peer-to-peer learning opportunities. The Summit is ideal for emerging to established artists, makers, and creatives of all disciplines who seek to advance their entrepreneurial skills, expand their peer network, and tap into local resources.”

Session Details:
Session F4. Essentials: Applications 101 with Yeiry Guevara

Grants, fellowships, residencies, etc. etc. They all require an application, but where do you even start? Artist, writer, and Grants Manager for Houston Arts Alliance Yeiry Guevara will cover application basics by establishing working definitions of common application terms, best practices, and what to look out for when applying for certain opportunities. 

Event Details:
July 19-20, 2019
Silver Street Studios
2000 Edwards Street, Houston, TX 77007


I’m taking suggestions for the session:

  • What questions do you have about applications?

  • What kind of content would you like to see in the session?

  • Stuff you always wanted to know about applications and not sure where to start?

Let me know!

Antidote Anniversary Celebration - 8/25/18

August 25, 2018 - Antidote Anniverary Celebration

Antidote Books turned 1 year old! In the past year, the owners and my dear friends Ruth and Jeremy, have worked endlessly to create a communal space for literature in Putney, VT. To celebrate this achievement, Antidote Books hosted a day full of fun events at the store.

It's a joy to see their efforts thrive in the community and a big honor to celebrate with them. I hosted my workshop titled "Intergenerational Trauma + The Creative Process" which details the production of "Vos Cipota", my zine based on intergenerational trauma.

About the Event

Antidote Books would not exist were it not for the support, belief and inspiration of our community. To anyone who has ever shopped at Antidote, attended one of our events, taught a workshop, or read their work at our bookshop, we express our immense gratitude.  Join us for this celebratory event with cake, raffle and refreshments! 10% of our one year anniversary event proceeds will go to Community Asylum Seekers Project VT.

 

About the Workshop  

Yeiry Guevara is a first-generation Salvadoran whose work seeks to create representation and visibility for communities of color. After releasing her zine “Vos Cipota,” she saw the need from her community to have conversations about intergenerational healing.

In the interactive workshop titled Intergenerational Trauma + Creativity, Yeiry will share what she learned in the production of “Vos Cipota” by breaking down her process: how to “know” what you don’t know, how to hold space for deep conversation with parents/elders, how to take care of yourself when you do get into the deep end of learning your history, and the role of self-care.
