The Reader’s Bloc is an online/IRL group of readers taking part in reading, listening and sharing exercises around texts that help us learn more about ourselves, the identities we share and the communities we live in.
For our next session, we are thinking about comfort, creating home and finding warmth within ourselves and our lives. We will be reading two texts – excerpts from the translated version of Banana Yoshimoto’s Kitchen, a story about a young girl finding small comforts that help her navigate life after the sudden death of her grandmother; and Self-Portraits, a personal essay by Devan Diaz about a transwoman finding comfort and joy in her girlhood.
Join us as we try to unpack the need for finding comfort and small joys through these accounts.
On registration, we will send you the text and the topics/themes we could discuss.
This programme is exclusively for 18–25 year olds.
This session is conducted as part of our engagements for the MAP OSCH Collective. The MAP OSCH (Our Shared Cultural Heritage) Collective is a community for young people (18-25 year olds) to engage with the arts and culture sector. The collective is for, of and by young people — to explore our shared identities and interests through art.
