(National Coming Out Day)
Part of the Major Exhibition Mark for Redaction
Please join Flux Factory and Tarab NYC on Thursday, October 11th, for our monthly community potluck and art salon. This month’s Flux Thursday falls on National Coming Out Day and one day before the opening reception for Mark For Redaction. To recognize the day and open the exhibition to our community, Curator Hilal Khalil has invited Tarab NYC to help us critically investigate the concept of “coming out.”
The board of Tarab NYC recognizes that “coming out” is complicated for many. Individuals in our communities have had a wide variety of experiences positive both positive and negative. “Coming Out”, itself a courageous act, is ultimately a personal choice, and it is the reality that many people do not have the privilege of being able to “come out” and many choose not to because of family, culture, religion or for personal reasons.
On October 11th, National Coming Out Day, Tarab NYC hosts a Writing and Storytelling workshop where you will have the opportunity to reflect, write about and discuss the concept of “coming out,” and share your own experiences. This workshop is open to everyone, join us as we center the voices of a queer, trans, and gender non-conforming people from the MENA region. Participants will have an opportunity to get a sneak preview of Mark for Redaction on exhibit from Oct 12 to Nov 11 at Flux Factory.
The event is free, but please do bring food or drink to share!
