Lunchtime Potionmaking Sessions: Justice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Building off of Black Benatar’s performance, we will hold daily potionmaking sessions to blend ingredients from their JEDI stories with ingredients from our own stories. Uncle JoJo’s recipe Potions for HumanityTM engages people in brewing their own healing tinctures through storytelling, power sharing, and art making. We are calling all creative Iowans to make potions that conjure the powers we need to adapt toward more JEDI artistic practices and creative communities. We are beginning with bias as we awakening to new understandings of the world. Each day we will explore one component of JEDI transformation - Justice on Tuesday, Equity on Wednesday, Diversity on Thursday, and Inclusion on Friday.

Creative Iowans will be encouraged to make and share potions leading up to the Iowa Arts Summit August 7. Learn More.


This session is sponsored by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, as a preview for the Iowa Arts Summit on August 7, 2020. The summit brings together artists, filmmakers, creative entrepreneurs, non-profit professionals and community leaders for a day of networking, learning and celebrating the arts in Iowa.
