Trinh Mai: That We Should Be Heirs

Extended

That We Should Be Heirs encourages participants to engage in the lost art of letter writing as a method of alleviating burdens and promoting healing. By putting hand to paper and joining one another in this collective activity of personal letter writing, we can share in this intimate process of privately documenting the stories, hardships, and triumphs that connect us all.

Letters written by immigrants and families of immigrants are encouraged. Letters handwritten in participants’ native tongues are welcomed and encouraged. Writings by survivors are encouraged. This project includes on-site activities and off-site workshops during which participants will be asked to write letters to themselves and/or others to pay respect to those who have shared in our heartaches and the approaches we’ve found to quiet our pain.

Make-It Workshop

Nov 5, 2019 - Jan 25, 2020

As Tim Gunn is fond of saying, “Make it work!” That’s the idea behind our Make-It Workshop, a creative and interactive space for innovators and other curious minds. We invite you to stop by the newly redesigned Studio X on Saturdays to try your hand at various activities. We’ve made everything from hydraulic arms to camera obscuras for optimal eclipse viewing. Make-It Workshop activities change monthly, and fees vary. Open to makers of all ages (participants 12 and under need an adult collaborator). For more information or to register, visit fleetscience.org/make-it. Prices for workshops are per project.
