About D&D: Dungeons and Dragons is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game that allows each player to create their own character to play. These characters embark upon imaginary adventures within a fantasy setting. A Dungeon Master (DM) serves as the game's referee and storyteller, while maintaining the setting in which the adventures occur.

Open Studio with Artist-in-Residence Grace Olson

Open Studio with Artist-in-Residence Grace Olson

Bubbler
Wednesday, Apr 10, 2024, 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Weekly Open Studios is a part of Family Reunion, the Bubbler Room Artist-in-Residence (Feb-May) with Grace Olson. 
Grace will be present every Wednesday evening 6-8pm, leading creative, hands-on activities and collaborative projects to anyone who stops by.  

Family Reunion is a space for reimagination and celebration of family in all the forms it can take. In this space, you are invited to take part in creative projects that explore the ways we all find, make, experience, and practice family. Grace's intention as a facilitator is to shed light on the unconventional and to encourage change toward more intentionality and interdependence. The wishing, making, tinkering, and pondering we do together will explore questions such as:

  • Who is in your lineage?
  • What stories/skills/heirlooms/artifacts/ways of being/ways of thinking do you wish to bring forward?
  • Where do you find a sense of home?
  • When does one “start a family”, and what does that mean?
  • How can we move towards building more loving and resilient family structures?

    The Bubbler Room is open to the public whenever the Central Library is open. It is closed to the public only temporarily for any scheduled workshops and/or community partner site visits.
