NOV/DEC Small Press Traffic Resident: Arisa White

November 03, 2016

arisa-white-small-photo-by-nye-lyn-thoRTS is excited to welcome our Nov/Dec Small Press Traffic resident, Arisa White!

Cave Canem fellow Arisa White received her MFA from UMass, Amherst, and is the author of Black Pearl, Post Pardon, Hurrah’s Nest, and A Penny Saved. She teaches in the low-residency BFA program at Goddard College and is a lecturer at San Francisco State University. She will be the distinguished visiting writer in residence at Saint Mary’s College of California in Spring 2017. You’re the Most Beautiful Thing that Happened is her newest collection from Augury Books.

During her residency at Real Time and Space, Arisa will be working to develop characters and setting for  “She: A Sister Outsider’s Heroine’s Journey.” “She” incorporates poetry, dramatic and lyric writing to create a poetic narrative that weaves myth, cultural history, ecology, and biography to tell a tale of living as a queer, black woman during the Great Recession. Lake Merritt in Oakland serves as the setting for “She,” and as the main character completes the 10 stages of the heroine’s journey, she interrogates the social ecology impacting her ability to mine and integrate the terrains of her own femininity.

RTS Talks: Mitzi Pederson and Emily Yamauchi

October 12, 2016

mitziemilytalk

RTS is excited to host talks by current resident Mitzi Pederson and Small Press Traffic resident Emily Yamauchi!  Join us on October 30th at 2pm!

Mitzi Pederson’s sculptures employ standard, prefabricated materials such as plywood, tulle, and concrete. The treatment and assembly rely on tension, endurance, vulnerability, and chance to allow for transformation. These compositions depend on the relationships established between the materials and her sense that there may be mysteries internal to them. The result concerns the occupation of space and the limits of form.

Emily Yamauchi is a writer and artist in Oakland, California by way of New Jersey, which some say is appropriate–who knows. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Saint Mary’s College of California. She writes fiction, comics, and graphic novels. Currently she is writing a novel and a graphic memoir. When she’s not writing or experimenting with projects fusing words/image/music, she’s teaching the young’uns around the Bay Area and working as a legal writer for immigration law. As a Hedgebrook and VONA/Voices alum and Oakland resident of 15 years, she is always looking to elevate and celebrate community and marginalized voices.

Real Time and Space is excited to host Introduction to Latinx Artist Retreat in partnership with Open Engagement!  Join us on Sunday, May 1st at 12:30pm for this round table discussion centered on Latinx art communities. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch!

Introduction to Latinx Artist Retreat is an artist-led effort to call a national convening of latinx artists, writers, scholars, and administrators for the purpose of building community and dialogue across cultures, regions, and mediums. As a self-organized project, The Latinx Artist Retreat would give latinx artist communities the opportunity to self-determine the means by which they are represented and supported organizationally. This introductory meeting is an opportunity for latinx peoples working in the arts to gather for the purpose of envisioning what a national gathering would look like and begin to share concerns. We welcome all latinx peoples and those working in latinx communities to attend.
