Open Door Project Hours with Shani Peters @ Kresge Art Center Conference Room 126A | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

The Womxn of Color Initiatives (WOCI), an effort to organize events for women of color and their allies at Michigan State University and in the greater Lansing community, is bringing MSU alumna Shani Peters back to campus during the month of March as an Artist-In-Residence to work on a collaborative arts practice project – “Sustain: A Demonstration/Modeling Survival and Self Care Tactics as Public Service” – that will focus on strategies for surviving racism in America.

Her work encompasses community building, activism histories, the subversion of popular media, and the creation of accessible imaginative experiences. She seeks to create environments and experiences that offer respite from painful realities – opportunities for collective power, learning, peace, and wonderment.

We invite you to join us for a month of events!
